STATEWIDE CRIME VICTIMS ORGANIZATIONS ENDORSE JEFFRIES FOR SUPERVISOR 
Opposition to early release of criminals, support for victims of crime key to decision

 
(Riverside, CA):  Crime Victims Action Alliance and the Citizens for Law and Order announced this week that they have jointly endorsed Kevin Jeffries for Riverside County Supervisor.  

“We haven’t traditionally endorsed candidates for local office,” said Christine Ward, CVAA executive director and president of the CLO, “but with the new state prison re-alignment program, County Supervisors are increasingly important in protecting our communities.  Given Kevin Jeffries’ public record of support for victims of crime and tougher sentences on violent crime, and his opposition to the early release of criminals into our communities, we were pleased to endorse him for the Riverside County Board of Supervisors.”

The CVAA has been in existence for twenty years and fights in California and throughout the country to significantly reduce the incidents of violent crime and future victimization, secure victims and survivors a central position within the criminal justice system, improve rights and services for victims of violent crime at the local, state and national levels, and alert the public and elected officials to the costs of crime and violence.  More on the CVAA is available at their website here:  http://www.cvactionalliance.com/

CLO, a grass roots organization of citizen activists, was founded in 1970 in Oakland, CA.  Since then, CLO encourages ordinary citizens to become more directly involved in the criminal justice system and to support law enforcement agencies and other organs of justice.  They are committed to the reduction of violent crime in America and to ensuring a balanced and fair criminal justice system, and hold a very special concern for victims and survivors of violent crime and trying to ensure a position of centrality for them in the criminal justice system.

“I’m very proud to be endorsed by the Crime Victims Action Alliance and the Citizens for Law and Order,” said Jeffries.  “I believe that public safety is the primary responsibility of government, and I felt that the Governor’s plan to release prisoners into our county jails and our neighborhoods without providing adequate resources to protect them was the wrong one.  Unlike my opponent, who voted to endorse his plan, I voted against it, and if elected, I will do what I can to find alternatives to early release of criminals and restore funding for front-line Sheriff’s deputies.”

Kevin Jeffries has supported tough on crime measures like Jessica’s Law and Marsy’s Law, to deal with victims’ rights, co-authored Chelsea’s Law to crack down on sex offenders and legislation to make it easier to fire teachers who have molested their students, and authored legislation to take away taxpayer-subsidized pensions from government employees who commit felonies in the line of duty.  He also carried a bill to increase the punishment for felony battery on a police officer, after a repeat violent offender on parole killed Riverside Police Officer Ryan Bonominio in 2010.  

“Our streets are safer when criminals serve their full sentences, whether in prison, jail, or in alternative fire or work camps.  We need to find a way to ensure that criminals don’t benefit from our state’s budget crisis, or bad decision-making from our elected officials,” said Jeffries.

Kevin Jeffries has also received the endorsement of the Riverside County Deputy District Attorneys Association for his support of public safety.
