DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on Congressman Miller’s Retirement in CA-11
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement after Congressman George Miller announced his retirement in California’s 11th Congressional district.
“For nearly four decades, George Miller has served the people of the Bay area in Congress, and he has built a well-deserved reputation as one of our most thoughtful and successful lawmakers. As chairman of three committees, George has been a legendary champion for working families and quality, affordable education and health care for all Americans.
“It has been an honor and privilege to serve with him, and while we are all deeply saddened to see him go, I know that his legacy of thoughtful, compassionate and knowledgeable leadership will live on and have a lasting impact on millions of Americans’ lives. Though he or she will have big shoes to fill, I am confident we will elect another problem-solving Democrat in George’s tradition in this overwhelmingly Democratic seat.”
