Fontana – The Fontana Police Officers’ Association is supporting Cheryl Brown to represent the 47th District in the State Assembly in the June 5th Primary. “Cheryl Brown understands the importance of public safety and will be an asset to our district,” explains Brian Binks, President of the Fontana POA. “She knows that the state’s continued economic recovery depends on safe communities where people can raise their families and grow their businesses.”
Cheryl Brown has both public and private experience with 31 years of running a publishing company with her husband Hardy and 17 years on the San Bernardino City and County Planning Commissions. Her civic engagement has spanned a lifetime and includes work with such groups as the Inland Empire Urban League, Arrowhead United Way, YWCA and the San Gorgonio Girl Scout Council. Brown’s years of experience in the California legislature extend from her posting as district representative for State Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod to her current work for Assemblywoman Wilmer Amina Carter. Her job is to make sure community issues – what matters to residents and business owners -- reach the Capitol.
“Our organization believes Cheryl Brown has a proven track record of leadership in her community, a record that has included strong support for law enforcement,” adds Binks. The Fontana Police Department is recognized at the state and national levels for award-winning community policing programs.
