CAMPBELL, CA – Campbell City Councilmember Evan Low today announced that his campaign has received the endorsement of the California Association of Highway Patrolmen (CAHP).
“California’s Highway Patrolmen are the backbone of public safety and safe transportation across our state and in our local communities. It is their hard work and dedication that has broken down what had been stubbornly high crime rates, making our state the safe place that it is,” Low said. “I’m thrilled to have the support of California’s Patrolmen and I will fight for them in Sacramento as hard as they work for us every single day.”
Low’s endorsement by CAHP quickly follows a month long string of endorsements for Low. In recent weeks, he received the endorsement from the California Democratic Party, the California Legislative LGBT Caucus, the San Jose Teachers Association and the California Federation of Teachers.
They join a growing and diverse base of support that includes local city leaders, Bay Area state legislators, statewide leaders, environmental advocates, labor unions, small business owners, and the law enforcement community that have united to support Evan Low for State Assembly.
