On behalf of the commercial, industrial, and retail real estate industry, we would like to congratulate Assemblymember Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), on being chosen by the Assembly Democrat Caucus as the next Speaker of the California State Assembly.  The transition was supported by the current holder of the gavel, John Perez, who released the following statement:

“I am delighted that Assembly Democrats have united behind Majority Leader Toni Atkins to become the next Speaker of the Assembly. I supported Ms. Atkins for Speaker because she is a strong leader on vital issues like increasing Californians’ access to health care, creating jobs and strengthening our state’s economy, and ensuring we honor the state’s debt to our veterans. I have also seen, perhaps better than anyone, how hard she works to keep the Assembly on track to take care of the people’s business. We will schedule a vote of the full Assembly early in the spring, and announce a transition date. I will do everything I can to ensure a seamless transition and I know Ms. Atkins will make an excellent Speaker.”

The transition is expected to happen sometime in the Spring.  We look forward to working with the new Speaker!
