SACRAMENTO, CA. – Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (CA-06) issued the following statement after the passing of Anne Rudin, Sacramento’s first elected woman mayor and community icon. 

“Sacramento has lost a champion of the people and trailblazer for women and girls across our region,” said Congresswoman Matsui. “Anne Rudin was a compassionate, courageous leader, who dedicated her life to the Sacramento community and was a tireless advocate for the voiceless. Her impact will be forever felt in our great city and her legacy will continue to inspire and guide us forward. She had a light that emanated from within her, and I will always remember her kindness and cherish our friendship. My prayers are with all of her family and friends during this difficult time. Anne will truly be missed.”
