Humane Society Endorses Catharine Baker For Re-Election
Assemblywoman Catharine Baker (R-San Ramon) announced today that she received the endorsement from the Humane Society for her advocacy supporting animal welfare issues.
In their endorsement, the Humane Society states, “California is leading he nation in animal protection policies, and it is because humane lawmakers stand up for the values of protecting animals from cruelty and abuse,” said Sara Amundson, treasurer of the HSLF PAC. “We urge voters across the Golden State to support these candidates….”
Baker stated, “All members of California families, including our pets, need a voice. I thank the Humane Society for the work they do every day, and I am grateful for their endorsement and recognition of my work to create a better and more humane environment for animals and pets in our community.”
Baker has co-authored animal welfare legislation, and works with local animal welfare groups in the district to promote adoption, spay-and-neuter programs, and pet safety. In support of Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, Baker recently released a video to promote pet adoption from local shelters in the 16th District.
