In anticipation of Father’s Day, State Senator Sharon Runner is looking for nominations for the first California Senate Recognition of Fathers – a special acknowledgement for the special man in a child’s life.
“Fathers play a vital role in the healthy development of their children,” said Sen. Runner. “It is important to recognize their tireless involvement and devotion.”

Runner added, “With many families having both parents working outside the home, fathers are taking a more active role in their children’s lives.”
Ideal candidates will be extraordinary fathers who volunteer for a community organization(s), coach a child’s sports team or are otherwise dedicated to making their communities a better place for their children.
Anyone wanting to nominate an exceptional father should go to Runner’s website at www.senate.ca.gov/runner  to fill out a nomination form.
For more information, please contact Runner’s office at 916-651-4017 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
All nominations must be received by Monday, June 20. An outstanding father from each region of the 17th Senate District will be selected by Senator Runner based on the nomination statement.
