|Description||Keith Richman, a three-term Republican state assemblyman who fought for pension reform and was a leader in the San Fernando Valley secession movement, has died. He was 56. |
Richman died of brain cancer Friday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, said his brother Craig.
A physician, Richman was elected in 2000 to the California Assembly, representing the 38th District, which includes the Santa Clarita Valley, Simi Valley and northeast San Fernando Valley. He could serve only six years because of term limits.
"He advocated for so many important causes in California, including healthcare and pension reform, and his work for our state made a lasting impact that will be remembered," Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said in a statement Saturday.
