(Sacramento, CA) -- The California Statewide Law Enforcement Association has endorsed General Richard Roth for re-election to the State Senate.
“CSLEA proudly endorses General Roth for re-election to the State Senate,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona. “General Roth has been one of public safety’s most effective champions in the Legislature, delivering the resources law enforcement needs to keep our communities safe. As someone who served our country in the Air Force for over three decades, General Roth knows that public safety must be a top priority, not a partisan issue. CSLEA is proud to stand with General Roth and looks forward to continuing to work with him to improve the quality of life for all Californians.”
CSLEA represents approximately 7,000 members who serve on the frontlines to put sex offenders behind bars, investigate arsons and bombings and stop elder abuse. As a result of the wide array of skills and knowledge CSLEA members possess, they are frequently called upon to lead multi-agency task forces to combat various crimes across California.
“I am honored to receive the strong support of CSLEA, one of California’s most diverse coalitions of public safety professionals,” said General Roth. “Keeping our communities and families safe will continue to be my top priority in the State Senate, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with CSLEA and its members to deliver the resources law enforcement needs to make our region an even safer place to live, work and raise our families.”
General Roth has continued to rack up endorsements from a broad coalition of public safety organizations and officials, including the California Professional Firefighters, the Corona Firefighters Association, the Riverside City Firefighters Association, the California Association of Highway Patrolmen, the Corona Police Officers' Association and the Riverside Police Officers' Association.
Here’s what some of them are saying about General Roth’s bipartisan record of delivering for law enforcement and keeping Californians safe:
