Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Congressman George Miller III Retirement

George's retirement is not only a great loss for the people of his congressional district and the people of California but for the nation as well.

As a legislator, he was a giant in the areas of workers' rights for both men and women, on the environment, in solving water problems, in advocating for infants, children and families and in particular the WIC program.

His work and service have left a great mark in the Bay Area and beyond but after forty years of service, I'm sure it's time to come home. Welcome home, George.
