California Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations Endorses Dr. Jasmeet Bains for Assembly
Public safety professionals continue to rally behind Dr. Jasmeet Bains’ campaign for State Assembly, with the California Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations throwing their support behind Dr. Bains today.
Craig Lally, President of the California Coalition of Law Enforcement Associations, said: “Dr. Jasmeet Bains has the vision, integrity and the capability to deliver for our families and communities. In the Assembly, she will make keeping our communities safe from the scourge of fentanyl, ensuring law enforcement has the tools they need to do their jobs, and keeping dangerous criminals off the streets a top priority. CCLEA is proud to stand with Dr. Jasmeet Bains for State Assembly.”
The California Collation of Law Enforcement Associations (CCLEA) is the state’s largest law enforcement organization. CCLEA represents more than 40 police associations and 150,000 peace officers.
Dr. Jasmeet Bains said: “Standing strong against crime and for public safety is something that is personal to me. My grandfather was a victim of homicide, and I have seen the impact this trauma has had on my family, in particular my mother, my entire life. That’s one of the many reasons I have a great deal of respect for the hard work and sacrifices of our law enforcement professionals and will be a force and a voice for victims and their families. I am proud to have the support of CCLEA and will always stand up for the rights of our families, children, and neighborhoods to be safe from crime and violence and look forward to working with CCLEA and others in keeping our communities safe.”
CCLEA is the latest organization of law enforcement professionals to endorse Dr. Bains, joining the Kern County Prosecutors Association in throwing their early support behind her candidacy. Dr. Bains has won the support of many other organizations and leaders, including the California Medical Association, the National Union of Healthcare Workers, State Senator Melissa Hurtado, Dr. Richard Pan, State Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber, and others.
The primary election will be held on June 7, 2022, and vote-by-mail ballots will be mailed to voters no later than Monday, May 9, 2022.
