Secretary of State Alex Padilla Statement on the Passing of Former Governor George Deukmejian

SACRAMENTO – California Secretary of State Alex Padilla issued the following statement on the passing of former Governor George Deukmejian.

“I join Californians across the state in remembering former Governor George Deukmejian and his long record of public service—as a member of both the State Assembly and the State Senate, as Attorney General, and as Governor. He made history as the first Armenian-American elected Governor. My thoughts go out to the Deukmejian family as they mourn their loss.”
