SLOCEA endorses John Laird for California State Senate
“Given his background, experience, and priorities, the San Luis Obispo County Employees Association is proud to endorse the election of John Laird to the California State Senate,” said SLOCEA President Angela McCormick.
John Laird has a long record of public service, having served as California Secretary for Natural Resources under Governor Jerry Brown (2011 to 2019), on the State Integrated Waste Management Board (2008 to 2009), in the California State Assembly representing the 27th District (2002 to 2008), the Cabrillo College Board of Trustees (1994 to 2002), and the Santa Cruz City Council (1980 to 1991).
In the State Assembly, Laird authored 82 bills that were passed by both houses of the Legislature and then signed into law by the Governor. “John Laird has made providing adequate support for education, improved access to health care, defense of our environment, and finding solutions to ensure California is affordable to middle-class workers and their families the top priorities of his campaign,” President McCormick said.
“Additionally, John Laird has been a friend and supporter of organized labor, having been a union member himself,” McCormick said. “SLOCEA looks forward to helping John win his election and working with him for all county employees when he is in the State Senate.”
