Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on the Passing of John Van de Kamp

"John Van de Kamp’s passing earlier this week is a great loss for Californians. We will remember John as a thoughtful leader, who routinely defended and fought for the values of California as a top prosecutor in Los Angeles, as Los Angeles County District Attorney, as President of the State Bar of California and as Attorney General of California. We also remember him for his compassion and vision as a Democrat and public servant. John was dedicated to the law and ardently fought for civil justice in California, and has left an enduring legacy of commitment to California through public service. Our thoughts are with his wife Andrea and their daughter Diana."
