CA State Sheriffs’ Association endorses Cunningham for Assembly
Templeton, CA— The California State Sheriffs’ Association (CSSA) has endorsed former Deputy District Attorney and small business owner, Jordan Cunningham, in his campaign to replace the termed-out Assemblyman, Katcho Achadjian.
Founded over 100 years ago, the CSSA was originally organized with the intent of providing California sheriffs with one unified, effective voice. Since its inception, the CSSA has greatly enhanced public safety leaders’ ability to keep the state’s communities safe by enhancing interdepartmental communications and improving training standards.
“Jordan is a proven voice on public safety issues for the Central Coast,” said CSSA President, Sheriff Donny Youngblood. “As a former Deputy District Attorney, he has worked with local law enforcement, kept criminals behind bars and families safe in their homes. His experience and commitment to a safer future will be welcomed at the state level, and we look forward to working with him.”
During his time with the District Attorney’s Office, Jordan prosecuted a wide variety of crimes – including fraud, assault, domestic violence, and environmental crimes. In addition to being supported by local public safety leaders such as San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson and Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown, Cunningham has earned the support of statewide organizations, such as: Crime Victims United, the California Correctional Peace Officers Association, and the California Association of Highway Patrolmen.
Cunningham is a committed husband and father of four, who recently opened his own small business. In this capacity, he uses his experience to benefit hardworking families and fellow small business owners.
Jordan is the President of the Central Coast Taxpayers Association and an elected member of the Templeton Unified School Board. He lives in Templeton with his wife, Shauna, and their four children.
