Pete Aguilar Receives Backing of San Bernardino County Law Enforcement Group

(San Bernardino, CA) – Pete Aguilar, a Democratic candidate for Congress in California’s 31st district, has received the endorsement of the San Bernardino County Safety Employees’ Benefit Association (SEBA), his campaign announced today. 

In making its endorsement, SEBA president Laren Leichliter said, “Simply put, Pete’s strong partnership with local law enforcement has helped our members do their jobs better. When it comes to who will best serve the county’s public safety needs in Washington, that’s Pete Aguilar.”

SEBA represents more than 3,100 public safety officers in San Bernardino County, including deputy sheriffs serving as the primary source of law enforcement for the cities of Rancho Cucamonga, Grand Terrace, and Loma Linda, and all unincorporated areas of the County. The organization also represents district attorney investigators, coroner investigators, welfare fraud investigators, probation corrections officers and specialized fire services across San Bernardino County.

Commenting on SEBA’s backing, Pete Aguilar said, “Ever since I was a teenager working for my grandfather in the San Bernardino County Courthouse, I’ve known the valuable contributions of our county’s public safety officers. As a father, husband, and Mayor of Redlands, keeping our streets and neighborhoods safe has been one my top priorities, and I’m very pleased to have SEBA’s support for my campaign for Congress.”

As Redlands Mayor, Aguilar has been aggressive in working to improve public safety in the city and throughout San Bernardino County. He has worked to maintain critical funding for local law enforcement, and he supported a gun buyback program that has taken more than 300 guns off Redlands’ streets, including 10 assault weapons. Aguilar also serves on the Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition.
