SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA- Santa Maria Mayor Alice Patino and Councilmembers Etta Waterfield and Michael Moats have endorsed Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham for re-election.
“Since elected to the Assembly, Jordan’s number one priority has been looking out for the Central Coast,” said Santa Maria Mayor Alice Patino. “In particular, his work to restore funding for the Gang Reduction and Intervention Program will make Santa Maria a safer place to live.”
Cunningham was first elected to the Assembly in 2016. Since then, he has focused on combating human trafficking and fighting to support career technical education (CTE). Cunningham helped lead the charge to restore funding for the Gang Reduction and Intervention Program (GRIP), which the City of Santa Maria relies upon for youth intervention. He has cut red tape for small businesses on the Central Coast and passed a number of pieces of legislation to protect victims of human trafficking and increase penalties for traffickers and johns.
After graduating from Atascadero High School, Cunningham graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a degree in physics. He then obtained his law degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
Prior to serving in the Assembly, Cunningham worked as an attorney in private practice, as a federal law clerk, and an attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice. He later returned home to become a Deputy District Attorney in the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office. He now represents individuals, families, and local businesses as the owner and founder of Cunningham Law Group.
Cunningham lives in San Luis Obispo County with his wife, Shauna, and their four children.
