Brown For Governor 2010
OAKLAND – The Brown for Governor Campaign today announced that the California Police Chiefs Association, whose members provide front line law enforcement services to more than three-quarters of the state’s residents, has endorsed Attorney General Jerry Brown for Governor.
“Whether battling cross-border drug cartels, cracking down on violent street gangs or locking up white collar criminals, Jerry Brown has been a top partner to police chiefs statewide,” said San Mateo Police Chief and California Police Chiefs Association President Susan E. Manheimer. “Jerry Brown is the public safety candidate in this race with the know-how, commitment and experience to get California back on its feet and we are proud to endorse his candidacy for Governor.”
The California Police Chiefs Association, established in 1966, represents more than 1,400 active and retired municipal California police chiefs and “seconds in command” in cities and towns throughout the state.
In addition to today’s endorsement, the California Police Chiefs Association endorsed Brown in the Gubernatorial Primary and endorsed his successful run for Attorney General in 2006.
Today’s endorsement follows an endorsement last week from Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca. Brown was also endorsed last month by the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC), the largest public safety organization in California and the largest statewide public safety association in the nation.
