Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on the Passing of Anthony Beilenson

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend, Congressman Anthony Beilenson, earlier this month.

Tony was a fierce public servant, guided by his integrity and promoting equal opportunities for all. From his tenure in the California State Assembly and State Senate to his time in Congress, Tony was an early champion of many causes we continue to work for today: fighting for common-sense gun laws and against the death penalty, protecting consumers, promoting women’s rights, as well as fiscal and environmental responsibility. He was a smart and humble man who left his stamp on the world, and we’re all a little better for it.

Our thoughts and wishes of peace are with his wife Dolores and his family.
