Jeandron Announces 1000th Endorsement 100 days out
Grassroots campaign amasses huge endorsement list
Today, former Police Chief Gary Jeandron announced that his campaign has received its 1000th endorsement just 100 days before the November 4th general election. Reynaldo Garcia, a resident of the City of Indio, signed the 1000th endorsement card over the weekend when Jeandron visited his house during a normally scheduled precinct walk.
After, Reynaldo and his wife Maria invited Jeandron and his supporters to discuss the issues facing the district he became the campaign’s 1000th endorsement.
“I had no idea the Chief had so many committed supporters but I’m proud to be just one of them. I’m definitely among the ranks of some good company,” commented Mr. Garcia, who joins the ranks of the National Latino Peace Officers Association, Riverside County District Attorney Rod Pacheco, and Imperial County Supervisor Joe Maruca, who all had previously endorsed Jeandron.
