GOVERNOR ANNOUNCES NOMINATION OF ALAMEDA COUNTY ASSEMBLYMAN ROB BONTA AS CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY GENERAL
Statement by Governor Gavin Newsom
Rob represents what makes California great – our desire to take on righteous fights and reverse systematic injustices. Growing up with parents steeped in social justice movements, Rob has become a national leader in the fight to repair our justice system and defend the rights of every Californian. And most importantly, at this moment when so many communities are under attack for who they are and who they love, Rob has fought to strengthen hate crime laws and protect our communities from the forces of hate. He will be a phenomenal Attorney General, and I can’t wait to see him get to work.
