Statement on the passing of former State Senator Ross Johnson
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte statement on the passing of former State Senator Ross Johnson:
"In addition to being a principled conservative and a man of great integrity, Ross Johnson was one of my mentors following my election to the State Assembly in 1990.
He served his constituents and the people of California with honor as a member of the California State Assembly, State Senate and as Chairman of the Fair Political Practices Commission.
While he had the courage of his convictions, he was always willing to listen to opposing points of view.
He never took political disagreements personally; and was admired, respected, and loved by his colleagues on both sides of the aisle.
Our prayers are with his wife Diane and his children as they grieve their loss."
