Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association Endorses Angelique Ashby for Mayor

Ashby Continues to Lock Up Key Support: Metro-PAC, Fire, Police, Deputy Sheriffs, Senator Pan, Assemblymember Cooper

Public Safety Leaders United in Support of Ashby’s Campaign

SACRAMENTO, CA — Sacramento Councilmember Angelique Ashby announced today that she has received the endorsement of the Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association.

Their endorsement quickly follows news that the Ashby campaign has virtually tied her opponent’s cash on hand, and has earned the support of the Sacramento Metro Chamber’s Metro-PAC. Ashby has now earned the support of each organization known to play a key role in Sacramento’s local elections: Sacramento Area Firefighters Local 522, the Sacramento Police Officers Association, Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association, and Metro-PAC.

“Angelique Ashby is bringing people together to make our streets, neighborhoods, and schools safer — delivering resources for emergency preparedness, life-saving equipment, and a commitment to public safety that is unmatched,” Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association President Kevin Mickelson said. “Sacramento’s Deputy Sheriffs are proud to endorse Angelique Ashby. She has our full support in her campaign for Sacramento Mayor.”

“For Sacramento families to succeed, it’s vital that our neighborhoods are secure and our streets are safe. On the council, I’ve brought people together to rebuild public safety in my district, and as Mayor, I’ll bring that same effort to all our city’s neighborhoods,” Ashby said. “Sacramento County Deputy Sheriffs put their lives on the line every day, putting our families ahead of their own safety. I’m honored to have their support.”

Ashby’s strong and growing coalition unites business with labor and with key local leaders. Her endorsements include the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange, Sacramento Laborers Union, Local 185, the North State Building Industry Association, the Sacramento Area Firefighters Local 522, the Sacramento Police Officers Association, and the majority of Sacramento’s state representatives: Senator Dr. Richard Pan and Assemblymember Jim Cooper, as well as Sacramento County Supervisor Susan Peters, Retired Sacramento District Attorney Jan Scully, and many more key community leaders.
