Riverside County Supervisor Chuck Washington is getting a boost from his colleagues and a public safety union in his bid for a full four-year term on the Board of Supervisors.

The Riverside Sheriffs’ Association, which represents sheriff’s deputies, probation officers and other law enforcement personnel, recently endorsed Washington, his campaign announced in a news release Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Supervisors John Benoit, John Tavaglione and Marion Ashley also have endorsed Washington, as does the union representing deputy district attorneys, according to the campaign.

Washington, a former Temecula and Murrieta councilman, became a supervisor after Gov. Jerry Brown in 2015 appointed him to serve out the unexpired term of Jeff Stone, who was elected to state Senate.
