Los Angeles, September 10 – Today Alan Jackson received the endorsements of El Rancho Unified School District School Board Members Rachel Canchola and Alfred Renteria, Jr. El Rancho USD includes more than a dozen schools and learning centers in the City of Pico Rivera.
Last week, former CA State Senate Majority Leader and 12-year Chair of the Latino Legislative Caucus Richard Polanco endorsed Jackson’s candidacy. Jackson continues to draw support from all corners of Los Angeles County as he leads in endorsements, fundraising, and polling in the nonpartisan race for District Attorney of Los Angeles County.
“As a 30-year veteran and Detective-Sergeant with a major law enforcement agency in Los Angeles, I agree with Mr. Jackson’s vision for justice and his plan to pursue it,” Canchola stated.
Renteria continued, “We are all responsible as a community for getting involved in educating our families and creative opportunities and alternatives for our youth. Mr. Jackson will make an excellent DA with his proactive approach.”
Jackson said, “Like Rachel Canchola and Alfred Renteria, my top priority is providing safety and opportunity for our youth. I am grateful to have the support of these two distinguished community leaders.”
