Santa Ana, Calif. – The California Association of Highway Patrolmen (CAHP) have endorsed Joe Dunn for California’ 46th Congressional District, announced the Dunn campaign.

“Joe Dunn is a respected leader who helps bring law enforcement together with the communities we serve to ensure we have the training and resources we need to keep people safe,” said CAHP President Doug Villars. “We’re proud to endorse Joe for Congress so he can continue making the safety of our communities a priority.”

In the state senate, Joe championed several public safety priorities, including a crackdown on imitation firearms being used in crimes and directly connecting 911 calls to jurisdictions that could respond quickest. At the UC Irvine School of Law, Joe is currently bringing together leading privacy advocates, top security professionals, and law enforcement leaders to launch one of the most comprehensive cybersecurity institutes in the nation.

The endorsement from CAHP — one of California’s most important law enforcement organizations, adds to Joe’s growing base of support within Orange County’s middle class. He’s also recently earned support from the Service Employees International Union, UNITE HERE, United Farm Workers, Operating Engineers, Orange County Employees Association, Orange County Young Democrats, and the Orange County Attorney’s Association.

Joe Dunn has thirty years of experience standing up to the establishment, and holding big corporations and government bureaucracies accountable to Orange County’s middle-class families. He’s empowered communities through the legal system to stop polluters and fought price-gouging drug companies. He investigated Enron and other unethical energy companies manipulating prices.  He took on oil companies ripping off consumers at the gas pump and stood up to gun manufacturers to make our neighborhoods safer.
Joe fought to secure millions of dollars from tobacco companies to be used for local health care services and community clinics. While heading the California Medical Association, Joe worked with physicians to help broaden access to affordable health care for Californians.

Joe lives with his wife, Diane, in their Santa Ana home of nearly twenty years. They have two adult children, Sarah and John. California’s 46th congressional district includes the cities of Anaheim, Garden Grove, Orange, and Santa Ana.
