Sheriffs representing 62% of CA-05 stand with Supervisor Nathan Magsig

FRESNO, CALIF. — Nathan Magsig, Fresno County Supervisor and candidate for the new 5th Congressional District, is excited to announce that he has secured the support of a growing roster of law enforcement leaders across the 5th Congressional District and California. They include. . .

  • Stanislaus County Sheriff Jeff Dirkse
  • Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims
  • Calaveras County Sheriff Rick DiBasilio 
  • The Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC)
  • Fresno County Deputy Sheriffs Association

The three Sheriffs collectively serve and protect 62% of the newly-drawn 5th Congressional District. PORAC is California’s largest law organization, representing 77,000 men and women in the law enforcement profession and more than 920 law enforcement associations.

Here’s why local law enforcement leaders in the 5th District are standing with Nathan Magsig for Congress:

“With Stanislaus County at the heart of this new district, I took my obligation to weigh candidates seriously. One candidate stood out among the pack: Nathan Magsig,” Stanislaus Sheriff Dirkse said. “He understands the challenges we face on the Valley floor and took the time to learn the needs of Stanislaus County. I’m proud to stand with Nathan and work with him as our next Congressman.”

“Fresno County has no better advocate than Nathan Magsig and we need him in Congress,” Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said. “In my many years working alongside Nathan, his passion to fight for his neighbor shines through. He has been a strong supporter of the Sheriff’s Office and will continue to fight to keep Fresno County safe in Washington.”

“Calaveras County is no stranger to wildfires, and we need a Congressman proactively working to prevent fires and help residents when they strike. That’s why I’m proud to support Nathan Magsig for the 5th Congressional District,” Calaveras County Sheriff Rick DiBasilio said.

Magsig issued the following statement regarding the endorsements from these Amador County leaders:

“I am humbled to have the trust of our region’s public safety leaders. Sheriff Dirkse, Sheriff Mims, Sheriff DiBasilio, PORAC and our local law enforcement associations face unprecedented hurdles to keep our communities safe. As our next Congressman, I’m focused on giving them the tools to continue keeping Valley and Gold Country communities safe and secure.”
