Dear Friend --
Thank you for the honor of serving as Speaker of the Assembly for the past four years. California is on the right track again because of the work we did together — keeping our budget in balance and reinvesting in education and the social programs that are core to our Democratic values.
At 1:00 pm today we will officially swear in Assembly Majority Leader Toni Atkins as our new Speaker. I look forward to working with all of you under her leadership as we continue California’s economic recovery with a fourth on-time and balanced budget.
Thank you again for four productive, memorable, and fun years as your Speaker.
Speaker John A. Pérez
