Sen. Runner Withdraws Bill From Hearing

Senator Sharon Runner has withdrawn Senate Bill 1021 from further consideration. The bill, which would have allowed local governments to prohibit some registered citizens from living in their cities and counties, was scheduled to be heard on April 19 by the Senate Public Safety Committee. Runner’s withdrawal of the bill is reported to be linked to her failing health, however, it may also be linked to the strong opposition to the bill voiced in letters submitted to the Committee by CA RSOL, the ACLU, the CA Sex Offender Management Board and the CA Public Defenders Association.

“The withdrawal of this bill is significant,” stated CA RSOL president Janice Bellucci. “It appears to be the end of a long attack upon registered citizens and their families by Senator Runner and her husband.”

Because the bill has been withdrawn from further consideration by the Senate Public Safety Committee, the bill cannot advance in the legislature during the remainder of the year or this legislative session.

NOTE: AB 2569 will be heard by the Assembly PSC on April 19

Finally, a piece of good news! At least there aren’t going to be two bills heard at the same time. Now we can focus on AB 2569.

Maybe, she will give up now since all this seems to have affected her health. Karma?

that very good news , I am hoping to see more good luck ,

Runner, R-Lancaster, underwent a successful double lung transplant in 2012 and says she’s now healthy, but her doctors have warned her that “the stress of the campaign and four more years in the Legislature would be detrimental to her health,” her office said in a statement.

Oh I feel so bad about Senator Runner’s failing health. What a VILLAIN!
I could comment more but I will maintain some decorum after all she deserves respect.

AWESOME!!! there was a time when this would have pass but 3 CHEERS to Janice, her team and all the people that donated.

This is great news. I just mailed out more letters on SB 1021 and had people make phone calls today. Now on to AB 2569!

As for Sharon Runner I am personally glad she is not seeking re election and that we have seen the last of her!

This is seriously good news…thanks to Ms. Bellucci and staff. Really.

Best Wishes, James

I guess having ice running through your veins tends to cause your health to fail, but I digress. What a shame. You would think that after surviving Scleroderma and a double lung transplant (source: Wikipedia) that one would use such a new lease on life to do compassionate work. Not in her case it seems. What a sad, sad, sad, miserable little life.

that’s right c karma she deserves no respect no compassion or empathy where was her respect and empathy when she was destroying lives and making life practically impossible to live i had to live by her unconstitutional bs law while I was on parole so I say good riddance finally some real justice has been laid upon one of these evil people hala luha.

I’ve never wished anyone ill health and frankly I’m not very religious, but, my first thought for Runner was “For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”. While this is worthy of celebration; we can’t rest because right behind this one will be another! Keep up the good fight Janice & crew!

It may just be my cynicism, but this woman didn’t just withdraw this bill “due to her health”. Her, and her idiot husband, have made it their life’s goal to make our lives as miserable as possible.

I’m just going on a hunch that something else is up here. I’ll be keeping a close eye on the “Bill List”, as I suspect something new and exciting will be popping up in the near future.

It certainly is good news that the Runners are finally on the way out. But don’t get too giddy about it, they were not doing this all by themselves. They have built a big organization that got multiple ballot measures passed. Their political office is stuffed with true believers, and certainly one of those strong, young bucks (or does) will now run to take over the Runners’ seat and also the entire organization.

So, this is not the end of it, in fact, it is likely simply a changing of the guard to a younger, stronger opponent. This is no time to misunderstand the situation and let our guard down.

I don’t know what we can do to make sure no ally of the Runners takes over the organization and office – gee, our support of someone else would only doom that someone else. Still, from that district, even if an opponent of the Runners gets elected, that person will never be a friend to us, will always vote against us, and probably feel it necessary to get some legislation against us through the Legislature just to be able to get reelected there.

Sorry for the reality check. But getting rid of the Runners will probably help us as much as killing Bin Laden got rid of Islamic terrorism. Its good to remain level headed.

Still, it is good news the Runners are on the way out.

I a m about not a fan of what Sharon Runner has been doing. I Am a registered citizen but I’m also a Christian too, I’m glad she’s no longer in office. But we cannot lose our compassion not what you said mr. C I would never wish bad Health on anyone. I have been through it with my own family I’ve seen bad health my family I’ve taken care of elderly parents and I’ve seen the suffering that the patient and families go Through and most of my elders in my family have passed I would not see anyone suffering that way. as a Christian I believe in which Jesus said when he says forgive those who trespass against you bless those who curse you pray for those who despitefully use you. no fight against it all the way with their doing but I do not have Hatred. I don’t know who made the comment but they are right this is not going to be the end of the fight there are plenty others that will take her place maybe someone even worse might rise up we need to keep doing what we’re doing fighting for what we do but we need to get the public educated and more importantly the courts educated about the reoffended rate and the myths around Registrants, but our biggest allies we need is to get some being large Media news people out there Needs to be convinced the myths of registrants and aboutthe reoffend rate and let them be out and report it to the public And the Courts. After all the media is what started this frenzy against us they can also be an ally to help end it by telling the truth and let the public know that it’s not as dangerous as Presumed I will pray for Shannon and her health and her family I wish that many people here could be like me And that’s to not like what she’s doing but do not wish harm on anybody I understand the frustration and anger,but it’s no excuse to have hatred and wish bad Health on someone.

I actually thought folks on this board were being charitable given the harm this woman has caused
But yes you’re right, someone else will rise up….from her cigarette ashes that is
