Central Coast state legislators endorse Cunningham
Templeton, CA— The men who know best how to represent the Central Coast in the state Legislature – Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian and former Assemblymen Sam Blakeslee and Tom Bordonaro – have endorsed Jordan Cunningham to follow in their footsteps.
“It’s been an honor representing San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties,” said Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian, who is stepping down after reaching a mandated six-year term limit.
“I know how difficult the Legislature has made it to create and retain jobs in California. I have fought hard to protect taxpayers, property rights and public safety while holding down the cost of government. Central Coast residents will be in good hands with a fighter like Jordan Cunningham representing them in the Assembly.”
Blakeslee preceded Achadjian in the state Assembly from 2004-10, including a term as Minority Leader, and also served two years in the state Senate.
“I served during difficult budgetary times for California as the Great Recession devastated state revenue and forced us to make many painful program cuts,” said Blakeslee.
“So I know how important it is for our legislators to be fiscally responsible, even in good economic times, so that we don’t have to go through that again when the next recession hits. Jordan Cunningham’s experience as a businessman and taxpayer advocate will serve him well in the Assembly.”
Bordonaro preceded Blakeslee in representing the Central Coast in the Assembly from 1994-98 and has served as the San Luis Obispo County assessor since 2002. Like Cunningham, he is also a past president of the Central Coast Taxpayers Association.
“I am honored that the men who know best what it takes to represent our beautiful area in the state Legislature have placed their faith in me,” said Cunningham.
“If elected, I will have big shoes to fill. And I promise to do my best to live up to their example and look out for the interests of our communities and our state.”
Cunningham is a former prosecutor, a current school board member and a business owner who lives in Templeton with his wife Shauna and their four children.
