Fresno, Calif.— Today, Anna Caballero, Chair of the California State Assembly’s Committee on Agriculture and candidate for California State Senate District 12, was endorsed by the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs,” said Caballero. “Throughout my time in the State Assembly and as Mayor of Salinas, I have partnered with law enforcement to make our communities safer and stronger, reduce gang violence, and protect our children. I look forward continuing this partnership in the State Senate with the support of ALADS.”
Founded in 1970, the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs is the largest association of deputy sheriffs and district attorney investigators in the United States. It currently serves over 7,800 law enforcement officers and conducts legislative efforts in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. to advocate for its members in matters related to pay, benefits and working conditions.
Assemblymember Anna Caballero serves as Chair of the Agriculture Committee in the California State Assembly and is the former Mayor of Salinas. As the first female Mayor of Salinas, Caballero oversaw the expansion of programs that reduced gang violence and brought crime in the city to an all-time low. Cited for her fiscal discipline, she turned a budget deficit into a surplus and went on to serve as the California Secretary for Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency, where she cut wasteful spending and championed the expansion of housing construction and services for homeless veterans. She is endorsed by the California Association of Highway Patrolmen, Firefighters, Nurses, and Teachers.
California’s 12th State Senate District, split between the Salinas Valley and the counties of Fresno, Madera, Merced, San Benito, and Stanislaus, is one of the most competitive legislative districts in California.
