ACDCC Resolution Urging Governor Gavin Newsom to Appoint Assemblymember Rob Bonta as California Attorney General

WHEREAS in December 2020, President- Elect Biden selected California Attorney
General Xavier Becerra as his nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services;
and in anticipation of Attorney General Becerra’s appointment, Governor Gavin
Newsom will be tasked with the appointment of a new California Attorney General;

WHEREAS the Alameda County Democratic Party has a strong history of protecting
the California Democratic Party’s bylaws, values and ideals, is an area of influential
Democratic support and politics; and is an important element of the electorate process
in the State of California; and the Alameda County Democratic Party aims to support
candidates and legislation that represent visions of inclusion, diversity, and protection
of our most vulnerable communities;

WHEREAS the Alameda Democratic Party believes that Governor Newsom should
strive to maintain equal representation of the Northern California regions, in particular
from Alameda County, and appoint statewide leaders who represent California’s
diverse, minority majority population and who have a proven track record of protecting
our most vulnerable communities and tackling a wide range of our state’s most urgent
and difficult issues; and with Assemblymember Rob Bonta having an excellent track
record of authoring bold, groundbreaking legislation on issues like: criminal justice
reform, environmental policy, tenant’s rights, responsibly funding our pension
obligations and banning for-profit, private prisons, building strong coalitions, as well as
his significant legal experience in key areas including civil rights, criminal law, and
consumer protection;

THEREFORE IT BE RESOLVED that with this appointment opportunity, the Alameda
County Democratic Party strongly supports Assemblymember Rob Bonta for the
appointment of California Attorney General Assemblymember; Rob Bonta would be the
first Filipino American to hold this position, is someone who would boldly lead while
bringing people together; we strongly urge Governor Newsom to appoint
Assemblymember Rob Bonta as the next California Attorney General.
