SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA- In his re-election bid for California State Assembly, Jordan Cunningham announced today that he has been endorsed by San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow.
When asked about the endorsement, Dow stated, “Jordan is a longtime friend and colleague who is better qualified than anyone I know to represent our communities. Having worked with him in the District Attorney’s office, I know that he has an unwavering commitment to public safety. He has the leadership necessary to advocate for common sense policies that make our communities safe.”
Cunningham was first elected to the Assembly in 2016. Since then, he has focused on combating human trafficking and has had multiple bills signed into law that protect public safety and increase victims’ rights in human trafficking cases. This year AB 1736 was signed into law which allows prior statements of trafficking victims and other witnesses to be introduced at trial under specific circumstances.
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.
Cunningham worked in Washington D.C. as an attorney in private practice, 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.
