SACRAMENTO - Attorney General Xavier Becerra today issued the following statement on the passing of former California Attorney General John Van de Kamp:

“John Van de Kamp lived for the values of justice and opportunity that define the State of California. Carolina and I extend our deepest sympathies to Andrea and family at John’s passing. I will forever be grateful for the confidence he showed in me from my earliest days of public service under his leadership at the California Department of Justice. Most recently, he was there for me again offering wise counsel, as I prepared to assume my role as Attorney General of California.

John understood the higher calling of public service. He performed for the people of California like few others. We will keep Andrea and his loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.”
