Thursday, March 10, 2016

SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement regarding Senator Sharon Runner’s (R-Antelope Valley) decision to not seek re-election for Senate District 21.

“I’ve known Sharon for nearly four decades. George and Sharon ran a charter school while I was a school superintendent in the Antelope Valley. We found a common bond in education. Since then, we’ve developed a strong bond as our friendship deepened while working together in the Legislature.

“Over the years, Sharon has shown remarkable resiliency while tackling tough issues for residents in the Golden State. She kept our children safe with her fight to pass Jessica’s Law and made sure our children came first in the classrooms. Sharon’s commitment as a public servant is unparalleled. Senate Republicans wish her the best as she takes on another chapter of her life.”
