Dr. Jasmeet Bains continues to dominate the race for the 35th Assembly District, with the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC) throwing its early support behind Dr. Bains’ re-election.
Incorporated in 1953 as a professional federation of local, state, and federal law enforcement Associations, PORAC represents over 78,000 public safety members and over 950 associations, making it the largest law enforcement organization in California and the largest statewide association in the nation. PORAC’s members provide Californians with the safety and security they need to feel protected in their homes and on our streets, identifying the public safety needs in our communities and providing critically needed programs to meet those changing needs.
PORAC President Brian Marvel said: “Dr. Jasmeet Bains has demonstrated her unwavering commitment to public safety, which is government’s most essential responsibility – protecting our families and communities. From fearlessly standing up for our children against human trafficking, to fighting the horrific fentanyl epidemic, that have devastated too many lives, to ensuring law enforcement has the necessary tools and support to do their jobs safely. Dr. Bains has shown she is the strong champion we need in the State Assembly. PORAC is proud to endorse Dr. Jasmeet Bains and we fully support her reelection.”
Dr. Jasmeet Bains said: “I am incredibly honored to have the support of PORAC, whose members work in some of the toughest conditions with a high level of professionalism and courage. I’m looking forward to another term in the Assembly and continuing to work with PORAC and others in making the Valley an even safer place to raise our families.”
