San Fernando Valley – U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman, D-CA, was endorsed today by an organization representing 30,000 Southern California police officers and sheriff deputies after the group weighed the congressman’s exemplary record of support on key public safety issues.
Brad’s latest endorsement comes from the Southern California Alliance of Law Enforcement (SCALE) and was announced by SCALE executive, Floyd Hayhurst. “When it comes to public safety issues and supporting rank-and-file deputies and officers, Brad has been there for us. Now it’s time for us to be there for him. We’re pleased to announce our endorsement of Brad’s reelection bid.”
Brad said he was extremely proud to have earned SCALE’s endorsement which comes on the heels of endorsements as well from The Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs (ALADS) and from LA County Sheriff Lee Baca.
Brad has been a strong supporter of using federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (stimulus) funding to protect local law enforcement agencies from painful, recession-driven layoffs and, as the leading Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade, has been a forceful advocate for coordinating the efforts of all levels of law enforcement in the fight against terrorism.
