SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Today, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham announced that he has received the endorsement of Pismo Beach Mayor Ed Waage.
“Over the last two years, Assemblyman Cunningham has been a strong advocate for the Central Coast in Sacramento,” stated Mayor Waage, “His work to mitigate the impact of Diablo Canyon’s closure will ensure that communities like Pismo Beach have the resources they need to transition to a post-Diablo economy.”
Since first being elected to the Assembly in 2016, Cunningham passed groundbreaking legislation (SB 1090) to assist San Luis Obispo County communities economically with the imminent closure of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Powerplant. In addition, Cunningham has focused on cutting red tape for small businesses on the Central coast by getting AB 657 signed into law. This bill ensures that all state agencies host a small business liaison that advocates for employers and holds bureaucracies accountable.
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.
Assemblyman Cunningham represents all of San Luis Obispo County and a portion of Santa Barbara County, including the cities of Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Paso Robles, Grover Beach, Lompoc, Morro Bay, Pismo Beach, Templeton, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, and surrounding communities.
Cunningham lives in San Luis Obispo County with his wife, Shauna, and their four children.
