Kanno Campaign Gains Stockton POA Endorsement

MODESTO - John Kanno (R-Modesto) announced today that the Stockton Police Officers Association has endorsed his campaign to unseat Dennis Cardoza for the 18th Congressional District. The Stockton POA endorsement is a major boost to the Kanno campaign which continues to gain momentum on a daily basis.

The Stockton POA endorsement comes on the heals of a meeting between Kanno and officers representing the POA. The officers questioned Kanno at length on various issues relating to law enforcement in the Valley prior to making their decision to endorse.

“I am extremely proud to have the endorsement of the Stockton Police Officers Association. These men and women put their lives on the line each and every day to protect us and when I am elected to Congress I will work everyday to be worthy of their support,” said Kanno.

“I believe that securing our borders is crucial to reducing the levels of crime here in the Valley. In addition to securing our borders I will fight for the funding to insure our law enforcement is the best equipped and best trained force that can be deployed,” said Kanno.
