Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham sworn into office
Templeton attorney begins new political journey for the 35th Assembly District
—Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R. – Templeton) has taken the oath of office as the newest representative for California’s 35th Assembly District. Cunningham committed to bringing a fresh perspective to Sacramento in order to find solutions for issues facing his community.
“I am excited and honored to represent the people of the Central Coast in the Assembly,” he told the Paso Robles Daily News. ” I look forward to working hard for them and solving problems like increasing water supply, strengthening career and technical education in our schools, and improving our small business climate.”
Cunningham added of this particularly difficult political climate, “I am hopeful that I can build coalitions across party lines to accomplish these things. It starts with building relationships and focusing on shared interests.”
Before being elected to the assembly, Cunningham served as a Deputy District Attorney in San Luis Obispo County and as a member of the Board of the Templeton Unified School District. Since 2015, he has owned and operated a small business, the Cunningham Law Group. He is the former president of the Central Coast Taxpayers Association and volunteered as a coach for youth baseball, soccer, and flag football teams.
Assemblyman Cunningham was joined at the swearing-in ceremony by his wife Shauna and their four children, as well as his parents. The new Assembly Member follows the tenure of Katcho Achadjian.
