Cooley earns Farm Bureau endorsement for attorney general
» September 1, 2010 «
A career prosecutor dedicated to governmental reform, Steve Cooley, has won the endorsement of the California Farm Bureau Federation in his campaign for state attorney general. The Farm Bureau Board of Directors endorsed Cooley, a Republican, who seeks election on the Nov. 2 ballot.
“Steve Cooley is a prosecutor, not a politician. He has demonstrated a strong commitment to law enforcement,” California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said. “That’s important to family farmers and ranchers, who experience theft, vandalism and other crime all too often. We appreciate Steve Cooley’s pledge to provide support and assistance for rural crime prevention to sheriffs departments and county prosecutors.”
Wenger said Farm Bureau was also impressed by Cooley’s position on regulatory reform.
“Ask farmers or ranchers their No. 1 concern, and oftentimes they’ll say it’s the layers of red tape they need to cut through to do their jobs,” he said. “As attorney general, Steve Cooley will work to reform California’s regulatory scheme, which can be a real barrier to creation of jobs and economic growth. He will make sure government serves the people without tying our economy up in knots.”
As Los Angeles County district attorney, Cooley has earned a solid reputation both as a prosecutor and as a public official. Wenger noted that Cooley reorganized the county district attorney’s office and “has the experience needed to streamline government in Sacramento. We look forward to his election as attorney general.”
The California Farm Bureau Federation works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of 81,000 members statewide and as part of a nationwide network of more than 6.2 million Farm Bureau members.
