Joint Statement from California Legislative Leaders on Result of Presidential Election

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

SACRAMENTO – California Senate President pro Tempore Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) and California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) released the following statement on the results of the President election:

Today, we woke up feeling like strangers in a foreign land, because yesterday Americans expressed their views on a pluralistic and democratic society that are clearly inconsistent with the values of the people of California.

We have never been more proud to be Californians.

By a margin in the millions, Californians overwhelmingly rejected politics fueled by resentment, bigotry, and misogyny.

The largest state of the union and the strongest driver of our nation’s economy has shown it has its surest conscience as well.

California is – and must always be – a refuge of justice and opportunity for people of all walks, talks, ages and aspirations – regardless of how you look, where you live, what language you speak, or who you love.

California has long set an example for other states to follow. And California will defend its people and our progress. We are not going to allow one election to reverse generations of progress at the height of our historic diversity, scientific advancement, economic output, and sense of global responsibility.

We will be reaching out to federal, state and local officials to evaluate how a Trump Presidency will potentially impact federal funding of ongoing state programs, job-creating investments reliant on foreign trade, and federal enforcement of laws affecting the rights of people living in our state. We will maximize the time during the presidential transition to defend our accomplishments using every tool at our disposal.

While Donald Trump may have won the presidency, he hasn’t changed our values. America is greater than any one man or party. We will not be dragged back into the past. We will lead the resistance to any effort that would shred our social fabric or our Constitution.

California was not a part of this nation when its history began, but we are clearly now the keeper of its future.


Hoy despertamos sintiéndonos extranjeros en tierra extraña, porque ayer los estadounidenses expresaron sus opiniones sobre una sociedad pluralista y democrática que es claramente inconsistente con los valores de la gente de California.

Nunca nos hemos sentido más orgullosos de ser californianos.

Por un margen de millones de votos, los californianos rechazaron abrumadoramente la política alimentada por el resentimiento, la intolerancia y la misoginia.

El estado más grande de la unión y la locomotora de la economía de nuestra nación ha demostrado que también tiene su conciencia más tranquila.

California es – y debe ser siempre – un refugio de justicia y oportunidades para las personas de todos los orígenes, lenguas, edades, y aspiraciones – independientemente de su apariencia, dónde vivan, qué idioma hablen, o a quiénes amen.

California, por mucho tiempo, ha sido un ejemplo a seguir  para otros estados. Y California defenderá a su gente y nuestro progreso. No vamos a permitir que una elección sea un revés para el progreso de generaciones en la cima de nuestra histórica diversidad, el avance científico, la generación económica y un sentido de responsabilidad global.

Estaremos comunicándonos con los funcionarios federales, estatales y locales para evaluar cómo una Presidencia Trump podría afectar potencialmente los fondos de programas estatales en curso, las inversiones creadoras de empleos que dependen del comercio exterior y la aplicación de las leyes federales que afectan los derechos de las personas que viven en nuestro estado.

Estaremos utilizando al máximo el tiempo durante la transición presidencial para defender nuestros logros, usando cada herramienta a nuestra disposición.

Aunque Donald Trump haya ganado la presidencia, no ha cambiado nuestros valores. Estados Unidos es más grande que cualquier hombre o partido. No seremos arrastrados de vuelta al pasado. Lideraremos la resistencia a cualquier esfuerzo que destruya nuestro tejido social o nuestra Constitución.

California no era una parte de esta nación cuando comenzó su historia, pero ahora somos claramente los encargados de mantener

Time To Kick Out Tom McClintock

Dear Neighbor and Friend,

The direction of this country will be determined on Tuesday. November 8. And your vote is important in deciding our future.

Tom McClintock has served nearly 8 years in Congress. It’s time for a change.  He is a career Politician; I am a medical doctor.  I have spent my life on the front line of medicine, seeing the struggles of so many.  He and I differ on so many issues important to the future of our children and the future of this great country.

  • We need a Congress that will “reach across the aisle” to compromise, and avoid a government shut-down, which Tom voted for.
  • We need a Congress to reach agreement on solving the problem of our outrageous cost of healthcare.
  • We need a strong consumer finance protection bureau to protect your rights against abuses by big banks and finance companies like Wells Fargo.
  • We need a well-managed forest policy for the Sierra Nevada to protect our watershed and sustain our billion-dollar tourist economy.
  • We need to protect our air quality standards to prevent the choking smog that has closed schools is some parts of the world.
  • We need to protect our clean water standards to prevent our families from being exposed to toxic chemicals and bacteria.
  • And we need to close the massive tax loopholes enjoyed by the Donald Trump billionaires and Wall Street mega-corporations.

Don’t be fooled!  What they don’t pay — you will!

This election boils down to this:  Do you what a Congress that writes the rules to favor special interests and take away your freedoms, or a Congress to write rules that will favor, benefit, and protect all of us?

I will work for you to ensure a  Common Sense Government and a fair playing field for a free market economy and the people who live here.

I need your vote on Tuesday.  Please assist our campaign and contribute.

Thank you.
