State Assemblyman Bill Dodd reported today picking-up a major endorsement in the race for State Senate District 3 from revered United States Senator Dianne Feinstein.
“Bill Dodd gets results on tough issues,” said Senator Feinstein. “We need more people like Bill who can solve the pressing issues facing California.
“Bill has been a leader on climate change, gender pay equity, fiscal discipline, fixing our transportation systems, and small business creation,” Senator Feinstein continued. “He is a Democrat who understands we can be both pro-business and pro-environment.”
“Receiving Senator Feinstein’s endorsement is truly an honor,” said Dodd. “Throughout her distinguished career she has been a force for the people of California and the nation.
“As a Democratic standard-bearer, Senator Feinstein has delivered over and over for working families through her strong will and principled leadership. That is the kind of leadership I want to bring as our next state senator,” continued Dodd.
