Santa Barbara County Sheriff Endorses Jordan Cunningham For Assembly
Templeton, CA – Former Deputy District Attorney and candidate for Assembly, Jordan Cunningham has received the endorsement of Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown.
Formerly the Chief of Police for the City of Lompoc, Brown was first elected Sheriff in 2006. In addition to leading over 700 employees and more than 100 volunteers that provide essential public safety services each day, Sheriff Brown is a dedicated member of his community. He serves on a variety of boards and commissions at the local and state level including the North County Rape Crisis and Child Protection Center, the Santa Barbara Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Lompoc Hospital Board of Trustees, the Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation, and he is a Commissioner on the State of California’s Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission.
“As a former Deputy District Attorney, Jordan has dedicated much of his career to the safety of our residents and he knows how to work with the men and women in uniform,” said Brown. “He understands the challenges we face and will prioritize public safety. I am confident that he will do an outstanding job in the Assembly.”
A San Luis Obispo County native, Cunningham has now received endorsements from the Sheriffs of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties, becoming the clear choice of public safety leaders for the areas in which he would represent as a member of the Assembly. In a previous release, SLO County Sheriff Parkinson stated, “I’m supporting his campaign because of his proven leadership and experience and I am excited to have him in Sacramento representing us.”
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, Cunningham has earned the support of Crime Victims United, the California Correctional Peace Officers Association, and the California Association of Highway Patrolmen.
Jordan Cunningham lives in Templeton with his wife, Shauna, and their four children.
