SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Today, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham announced that he has received the endorsement of IBEW Local 1245, the union representing over 100 local units of line workers of PG&E and other power companies.
“As the Central Coast’s Assemblyman, Jordan has made a habit of working across party lines to better our community,” said Tom Dalzell, IBEW Local 1245 Business Manager. “Jordan’s ability to pass critically important pieces of legislation, like securing permanent funding for Career Technical Education and passing SB 1090, shows his commitment to growing job training and protecting our economy.”
Cunningham was first elected to the Assembly in 2016. In his first term in the Legislature, he has been recognized for his leadership in combating human trafficking, and supporting Career Technical Education.
Cunningham recently co-authored SB 1090, the groundbreaking, bipartisan legislation that mitigates the closure of the Diablo Canyon Power Plant and ensures the plant has the staffing levels needed to continue to run the plan through its 2025 closure date.
