Peace Officers Association backs Cunningham
Templeton, CA— The largest public safety organization in California has endorsed Assembly candidate Jordan Cunningham, predicting that he “will be an excellent representative … especially in regards to the issues involving public safety.”
Representing more than 69,000 officers and 920 member organizations, the Peace Officers Research Association of California champions itself as a leader in fighting to enhance public safety, uphold professional training standards and protect the rights of peace officers.
“As peace officers, we appreciate Jordan Cunningham’s commitment to working with the men and women in uniform, and we look forward to partnering with him on issues involving public safety and law enforcement,” said PORAC President Michael Durant. “Based on his experience and actions, it’s clear that the safety of those on the Central Coast will always be his first priority.”
Cunningham’s dedication to law enforcement was honed in his years as a San Luis Obispo County deputy district attorney. He compiled a stellar trial record prosecuting a wide variety of crimes, including fraud, assault, domestic violence, and environmental abuse.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of PORAC,” said Cunningham. “I will continue to be a strong advocate for public safety as a member of the State Assembly.”
Cunningham is running for Assembly District 35, which encompasses San Luis Obispo County and western Santa Barbara County. He is the co-founder and owner of the Cunningham Law Group, and is the former president of the Central Coast Taxpayers Association, a Templeton School Board member and coach for youth sports teams.
PORAC’s endorsement follows other law enforcement supporters, which include the California State Sheriffs’ Association, California Correctional Peace Officers Association and California Association of Highway Patrolmen as well as San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown and San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow.
Cunningham lives in Templeton with his wife, Shauna, and their four children.
