SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Today, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham announced that he has been endorsed by the California Professional Firefighters (CPF). CPF represents over 30,000 firefighters, one of the most influential public employee organizations in the country.
“Jordan has continuously shown that he will fight for the health, safety and wellbeing of the public and our state’s firefighters,” said CPF President Brian Rice.
Cunningham has supported bipartisan legislation protecting California against wildfires and ensuring that the mental health of firefighters is being cared for. Cunningham was a supporter of AB 1116, which would create the California Firefighter Peer Support and Crisis Referral Services, and coauthored a bill to create more firefighting apprenticeship opportunities for minorities and women (AB 579).
CPF also endorsed Cunningham in 2018.
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 served as a deputy district attorney in SLO County, and on the Templeton Unified School Board. He owns a small business with his wife Shauna, and enjoys coaching youth sports and raising their four kids.
