The San Bernardino Police Officers Association today announced its endorsement of 3rd District County Supervisor Neil Derry.
“Police Officers commend Supervisor Neil Derry for his dedicated and effective leadership in the fight against crime. Supervisor Derry’s support for tougher measures to combat gangs and parolees has helped local Law Enforcement to significantly reduce violent crime,” said Association President Steve Turner.
“San Bernardino Police Officers voted unanimously to endorse Supervisor Neil Derry’s re-election to the County Board,” continued Turner. “His commitment to public safety is making a difference for all the residents of District 3.”
“It is truly humbling to earn the support of San Bernardino Police Officers who are putting their lives on the line every day to protect our families, our homes and our neighborhoods,” declared Derry. “As your Supervisor, I will continue to make public safety protection my top priority.”
A United States Marine and former local City Councilman, Supervisor Neil Derry won election to the Board of Supervisors in 2008 by defeating a longtime entrenched incumbent. During his first term, Neil authored the County’s new sunshine ordinance; cut excessive benefits and perks for county elected officials; and supported the innovative new e-Verify program to combat illegal immigration. Neil and his wife Michelle have one son. They reside in Redlands.
