Senate Republican Leader Wilk Issues Statement on the Passing of former Senate Republican Leader Bob Dutton

Senate Republican Leader Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) issued the following statement after learning of the passing of former California Senate Republican Leader Bob Dutton:
“Bob epitomized the term ‘citizen statesman,’” said Leader Wilk. “He brought a common-sense approach whether he was serving on the Rancho Cucamonga City Council, State Assembly, State Senate, and finally as the Assessor-Recorder-Clerk for San Bernardino County.
“He loved this state and his community. We are all grateful for his service to California. Bob was also a friend and gave my son an opportunity to work in his district office when he served in the State Senate. For that, I will always be grateful.
“Vanessa and I offer our condolences to his wife Andrea, his daughter Kara, and his father Ted,” Leader Wilk concluded.
