California Farm Bureau Endorses Danny Gilmore For Assembly
» June 23, 2008 «
Public safety advocate and retired California Highway Patrol officer Danny Gilmore has earned the California Farm Bureau Federation's endorsement for election to the 30th Assembly District.
A Marine veteran, Gilmore has served his country and community with distinction during his 31-year career with the California Highway Patrol. Before retiring in 2003, Gilmore's final promotion was to Assistant Chief to the Central Division Headquarters in Fresno.
"Danny Gilmore has a distinguished history of public service and continues to support causes that matter to family farmers and ranchers," California Farm Bureau President Doug Mosebar said. "He understands key issues in our state's agricultural communities and his experience in law enforcement gives him a unique perspective on combating rural crime."
The 30th Assembly District encompasses Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare and Kern counties, each of which is among California's top agricultural producing counties.
"Danny Gilmore recognizes the importance of working together to address issues surrounding our state's current water crisis," Mosebar said. "And he acknowledges the rising problem of metal theft on our family farms and ranches and the need for swift solutions."
Gilmore seeks to replace Assemblymember Nicole Parra, D-Hanford, who has served in the Assembly since 2002.
The California Farm Bureau Federation, the state's largest farm organization, works to protect family farms and ranches on behalf of 92,000 members statewide.
