DOWNEY – A California progressive organization has named State Sen. Bob Archuleta to its Hall of Shame for a voting record “most closely aligned with the corporate lobbyists and campaign contributors that exploit Californians.”
Archuleta, from Pico Rivera, represents Downey in the state Senate.
“For far too long, Californians have suffered under skyrocketing housing costs, a failing healthcare system, a broken criminal justice system, and a deeply underfunded education system,” said Eddie Kurtz, executive director of Courage California, which produces the annual Hall of Shame. “That’s why voters made California a one-party state with a legislative supermajority: they had faith that Democrats would have the courage to stand up to corporate lobbyists and find solutions to our most critical problems. It’s time for Democrats to deliver.
“Legislators must truly represent the values of Californians, and take action to make real, bold progress on the array of challenges our state faces.”
In total, a dozen legislators from throughout California were named to the Hall of Shame.
