Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff Honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
SACRAMENTO: Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day:
“Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther, Jr. Dr. King’s legacy continues to resonate with me and many Californians because of his extraordinary level of commitment and courage in the fight for justice and equality for every American.
“We can realize Dr. King’s dream by re-committing ourselves to the message behind his teachings, especially his belief in the power of education. Dr. King once said that the true goal of education was intelligence plus character; I believe that’s the greatest gift we can give our children.
“Senate Republicans are committed to the realization of Dr. King’s dream and will do everything possible to ensure that every child, no matter who they are or where live, has the opportunity at a world-class education.”
