"Each of us at the California Republican Party is saddened tonight by the news that former Assemblyman Nao Takasugi of Oxnard has passed away.

"Mr. Takasugi led an extraordinary life, from his studies at UCLA, to an internment camp for Japanese Americans during World War II, to later serving as the Mayor of Oxnard, and finally as a member of the California State Assembly. Tonight we all take the time to recognize an extraordinary man, and an extraordinary Californian.
