  SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield) introduced Assembly Concurrent Resolution (ACR) 276 to honor the memory of the beloved former mayor of Bakersfield and founder of Hall Ambulance Service, Inc., Harvey Hall. The resolution will designate State Route 204 between State Route 178 and State Route 58 the Harvey L. Hall Memorial Highway.

“It was an honor and a pleasure to serve with Mayor Hall during my time on City Council. It was truly a privilege to know him as an accomplished and generous mentor, and a dear friend,” said Assemblymember Salas. “Mr. Hall was an inspiration to all who knew him and served as a champion for our city who preached for ‘unity in the community.’ His impact on the community will live far beyond the time he served as mayor.”

Today, the Assembly Transportation Committee passed ACR 276 with bi-partisan support 13-0. ACR 276 is expected to come before the full body of the legislature next week where Assemblymember Salas will present the resolution. In the spirit of unity, Assemblymember Salas added fellow Kern County legislators Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield), Senator Andy Vidak (R-Bakersfield) and Assemblymember Vince Fong (R-Bakersfield) as principal co-authors and joint authors.

During his time on City Council, Assemblymember Salas served with Mayor Harvey Hall from 2010-2012.
