Paso Robles Daily News | April 25, 2016 –
Small business owner and candidate for Assembly, Jordan Cunningham, has announced that he has received the endorsement of the Santa Barbara County Republican Party.
“There is one candidate in this race who has the experience we need in Sacramento, who will fight for the Central Coast, and that’s Jordan Cunningham,” said Chairman Dale Francisco. “Jordan has prosecuted criminals, defended taxpayers, and stood up for small business. He will be an exemplary Assemblyman.”
Cunningham grew up on the Central Coast, where he attended local schools. After earning his law degree from U.C. Berkeley, Cunningham went on to work for the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., where he developed a passion for public safety.
After returning home, Cunningham served as Deputy District Attorney in the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted hundreds of crimes – including fraud, assault, domestic violence, and environmental crimes. Today, Cunningham and his wife operate the Cunningham Law Group, which serves clients across the Central Coast.
Cunningham is the President of the Central Coast Taxpayers Association, and currently serves as a member on the Board of the Templeton Unified School District. In his spare time, he coaches youth baseball, soccer, and flag football.
“The hardworking members of our community need someone who will stand up to Sacramento politicians and the tax increases and regulations they impose on the rest of the state, which only threatens our ability to earn a living,” Cunningham said. “I am honored to have the support of the Santa Barbara County Republican Party, because we share a mutual goal of protecting small business owners and working families.”
Jordan Cunningham is running for California State Assembly District 35, a district that encompasses San Luis Obispo County and a portion of Santa Barbara County. He will face at least one candidate, Dawn Ortiz-Legg, a Democrat, who has formally announced a campaign to replace Katcho Achadjian, who was re-elected in both 2012 and 2014.
