Sacramento – Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) issued the following statement in response to hearing the passing of Senator Sharon Runner:
I was deeply saddened to hear of Sharon’s passing. She had boundless energy and love for the hundreds of thousands of people she has served over her many years as a great stateswoman. She was a passionate champion for safeguarding children, honoring veterans and bolstering education, among many other issues. The Senate will not be the same without her inspiring presence. My heart goes out to her family, staff, colleagues and friends as we mourn and celebrate her life.
