Jordan Cunningham Endorsed by California Correctional Peace Officers Association
Templeton, CA – Today, local small business owner and candidate for State Assembly, Jordan Cunningham, announced that he has received the endorsement of the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA). CCPOA represents more than 30,000 correctional peace officers who work inside California’s prisons and youth facilities, as well as the state’s parole agents who supervise inmates after their release.
“Given his background as a prosecutor, Jordan Cunningham understands firsthand the importance of prioritizing public safety,” stated CCPOA President Chuck Alexander. “Sacramento needs more leaders like Jordan, who understand what’s at stake and has the expertise to provide commonsense solutions to the problems that threaten the safety of our communities. He’s undoubtedly the right fit for the job.”
A Central Coast native, Jordan Cunningham received his law degree from the University of California, Berkeley. After graduating, Jordan worked in Washington, D.C. as a federal law clerk and as an attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice.
Over the course of his legal career, Jordan developed a passion for public safety and eventually returned home to serve as a Deputy District Attorney in the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office. As a Deputy DA, Jordan prosecuted a wide range of crimes – including fraud, assault, domestic violence, and environmental crimes.
“Providing adequate support for our law enforcement officers is critical to keeping our streets and neighborhoods safe,” replied Cunningham. “I am honored to receive the endorsement of the CCPOA and will continue to be a strong advocate for public safety as a member of the State Assembly.”
Jordan is the owner of the Cunningham Law Group and serves as the president of the Central Coast Taxpayers Association, an elected member of the Templeton School Board and coach for multiple local youth sports teams. He is running to succeed termed-out Katcho Achadjian in the 35th Assembly District, and lives in Templeton with his wife, Shauna, and their four children.
