Congratulations to Michael Bowman and Elk Grove. Any day a Connelly or a Conley go into retirement is a great day for the citizens of Elk Grove and City of Elk Grove!

Lloyd Connelly was a bright legislator and a conscientious jurist. He adjudicated complex civil issues and fairly oversaw the worst criminal cases.

Lloyd Connelly gave us Prop 65 and established the first cancer registry in California.
Lloyd got the rice farmers to stop burning their stubble, which used to create horrible, sky-darkening daytime conditions in the late summer of Sacramento. Lloyd was the last legislator who allowed citizens to shadow him at the Capitol.
