State Assemblyman Bill Dodd today reported receiving the endorsement of California Attorney General Kamala Harris in the race for State Senate District 3.
“Bill’s record shows his commitment to addressing the issues facing law enforcement,” said Attorney General Harris. “In addition to his demonstrated support for keeping our communities safe, he has dedicated himself to stopping identity theft, combating elder abuse and protecting our most vulnerable citizens.”
“We need his leadership in the state Senate,” she continued.
Attorney General Harris is the state’s top law enforcement officer, who oversees public safety, in the criminal area and consumer protection, on behalf of the people of California.
During her service as Attorney General, she has worked to stop international trafficking of guns, drugs and human beings, facilitated greater use of technology by California law enforcement agencies, and in response to the state’s foreclosure crisis prosecuted mortgage-related fraud and secured an $18 billion settlement from the nation’s banks, including $12 billion for principal reduction.
She has also worked with the technology industry to improve privacy protections and strengthen online safety for consumers.
