PORAC, CPF, Organizations and Leaders Unite Behind Wolk as Best Candidate for Public Safety
Police, fire and public safety leaders have unified behind Mayor Dan Wolk for Assembly, as the state’s largest police and fire organizations announced their endorsement of his campaign. The Peace Officers Research Organization of California (PORAC) and California Professional Firefighters (CPF) this week joined CAL FIRE Local 2881, the California Association of Highway Patrolmen (CAHP), local public safety officials and a number of local public safety leaders supporting Wolk.
These leaders and officials cited Wolk’s leadership on public safety issues and his commitment to keeping Californians safe in the Assembly as their reason for their support.
“California Professional Firefighters is proud to endorse Dan Wolk for Assembly because he will make fire protection a top priority,” said CPF President Lou Paulson. “We look forward to working with Dan in Sacramento to ensure our communities have the resources they need to keep residents safe.”
Public safety leaders endorsing Wolk include Napa County Sheriff John Robertson, Solano County Sheriff Tom Ferrara, Sonoma County Sheriff Steve Freitas, Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto, Napa County District Attorney Gary Lieberstein, Solano County District Attorney Krishna Abrams and Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig.
In addition to the statewide organizations, Wolk is endorsed by the Davis Police Officers’ Association, Napa County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association, Napa Police Officers’ Association and Solano County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association.
“I am proud to support Dan Wolk for Assembly because he has always made public safety a top priority. I look forward to working with him in Sacramento to make our region a better and safer place to live,” said Sheriff Robertson.
PORAC represents over 66,000 public safety members throughout California and over 900 associations, making it the largest law enforcement organization in California and the largest statewide association in the nation. CPF has a membership of more than 30,000 firefighters and is the largest statewide organization dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of career firefighters.
“I deeply appreciate the endorsement from the men and women who are among our most trusted and valued public servants,” said Wolk. “I have always made support of public safety a priority and I will continue to work side-by-side with public safety and law enforcement leaders in the Assembly to reduce crime and make California’s communities safer.”
Currently serving as Mayor, Wolk has been on the Davis City Council since 2011. He works as a Deputy County Counsel for Solano County, and has handled public finance, public contracting and water issues. He is also the founder of the Legal Clinic of Yolo County, a legal services provider for low-income families.
Assembly District 4 consists of Napa and Lake Counties, most of Yolo County, as well as portions of Sonoma, Solano and Colusa Counties.
