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.
â€œI am honored to have the support of Santa Ana law enforcement,â€ said Rep. Sanchez. â€œIn Congress, I have always fought to get our police officers the tools and resources they need to combat crime in our neighborhoods.

Police Officers across North Orange County today announced their endorsement of Businessman and Anaheim Mayor Pro Tem Harry Sidhu in the run-off election for Orange County Supervisor. â€œHarry Sidhu has a strong record of supporting public safety on the Anaheim City Council.

On Saturday we saw a curious dance between Assemblyman Van Tran and First District Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen orchestrated by Orange County GOP leader Scott Baugh.

Even the press statement fired off after the photo-op, failed to include a single quote from Supervisor Nguyen.
