Public Safety Officers Back Julio Perez for Assembly
Statewide Organization Calls Perez “the Responsible Choice” in 69th Assembly District Race
Santa Ana, CA– Saying he is the responsible choice to represent the 69th Assembly District, the State Coalition of Probation Organizations (SCOPO) today announced its backing of Julio Perez for Assembly. The Orange County chapter of SCOPO represents more than 700 sworn peace officers throughout the county that work in local courthouses and jails.
“The need for responsible leadership in Sacramento has never been greater, that’s why we are supporting Julio for Assembly,” said Paul Brennan, president of SCOPO. “We know we can count on his continued support for public safety and ensuring law enforcement personnel have the tools they need to prevent crime and protect victims. Julio is the responsible choice for voters in the 69th Assembly District race.”
A staunch supporter of the rights of crime victims, Julio believes public safety is a fundamental civil right. He supports Attorney General Kamala Harris’ “Smart on Crime” approach that focuses on eliminating the actual causes of crime along with the appropriate punishments for criminals.
“I am deeply grateful and extremely honored to have gained the support of the members of SCOPO,” said Perez. “One of my top priorities in the Assembly will be to continue to work closely with law enforcement to keep our communities safe.”
Julio has also earned the support of key community leaders including State Board of Equalization Member Betty Yee, (ret.) State Senator Joe Dunn, Anaheim City Councilwoman Lorri Galloway, LULAC State Director Benny Diaz, Rancho Santiago Community College Trustee John Hanna, North Orange County Community College District Trustee Mike Matsuda, Anaheim City School District Trustees Dr. Jose Moreno and Jeff Cole, Westminster School District Trustee Sergio Contreras and Garden Grove Unified School District Trustee Bao Nguyen.
Julio is running in the June Primary to represent the newly redrawn 69th Assembly District, which now has the largest amount of Latinos of all districts statewide – 78.3%. The 69th District includes a large part of the City of Santa Ana along with portions of Anaheim, Garden Grove and Orange.
