Bill Dodd, D-Napa, joined Senator Scott Weiner and Assemblymember Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, in honoring Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical advisor to the president who guided the nation through the coronavirus pandemic.

“It was truly an honor to meet Dr. Fauci, whose steadfast commitment to science and medicine saved so many lives,” Sen. Dodd said. “He was our North Star during the pandemic, guiding us with unflinching honesty through the darkest times to a course that ultimately led to reduced infections. Even before that, he worked tirelessly in the fight against other deadly threats including the AIDS epidemic and a host of other infectious diseases. It’s my privilege to be able to recognize him for his lifetime of achievement.”
