The LA Fed Celebrates Historic Appointment of Assemblymember Rob Bonta as Attorney General
Statement from Ron Herrera, President of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO following the appointment of Assemblymember Rob Bonta as the Attorney General for the State of California:
“Congratulations to Assemblymember Rob Bonta on his historic appointment by Gov. Gavin Newsom as our next California Attorney General. As the first Filipino-American Attorney General, Bonta represents the diversity and values of our great state. Throughout his career, Bonta has been a steadfast defender of working people and an advocate for historically disenfranchised communities.
His track record is more than just simple words; Bonta has defended working families in some of the most important issues of our time such as misclassification and wage theft, while championing protections for workers and their right to join a union.
In this critical time in our state’s history, I am confident that Rob Bonta’s values, experience, and commitment towards justice will help usher in a more progressive era for California.”
