Governor Newsom appointed Assembly member Rob Bonta to be in California. AG
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (Democrat) chose an Assembly member from Alameda, California, to become the state's next Attorney General. On Wednesday, Rob Bonta accepted the nomination and thanked the governor for the opportunity.
"A special thank you, Governor, of Newsom, for the privilege and honor of your life," he said. "And I feel very humbled by the trust, faith, and trust you placed in me."
The newly appointed official said one of his areas of focus as attorney general would be criminal justice reform. However, this approach has raised concerns as critics fear that his crime-fighting policies could spell disaster for the golden state.
