Assembly Speaker John Perez’s Education Under Scrutiny
The website California Watch reported Thursday that before Perez was elected to the Assembly in 2008, biographies distributed by the Los Angeles mayor’s office and then-Gov. Gray Davis indicated that Perez had graduated from UC Berkeley.
Perez said in a statement that although he did attend Berkeley, he did not graduate.
He says he takes full responsibility for the mistake and has worked hard to correct the record.
