Text of the ad is below:
(Sheriff McMahon) This is San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon.
And I want to tell you why we need James Ramos in the State Assembly.
As County Supervisor, James Ramos has gone the extra mile to help us fight crime and protect public safety.
When a local anti-gang agency faced deep budget cuts, James Ramos stepped up, and paid for their tactical, bulletproof vests out of his own pocket.
And when Sacramento politicians wanted to let dangerous criminals out of jail early, Ramos fought back.
James Ramos. As Assemblyman, he’ll put politics aside, and do what’s best for the Inland Empire.
(Voice Over) That’s why Sheriff John McMahon, local police officers, police chiefs, prosecutors, the highway patrol, firefighters, and Crime Victims United all endorse James Ramos for Assembly.
This is Sheriff John McMahon. I’m proud to support James Ramos for Assembly. I hope you will, too.
Ramos, a Democrat, has served as a Supervisor of San Bernardino County since 2012. In 2015, he was unanimously elected by his colleagues to serve as Board Chairman. Ramos was the first Native American to be elected to the Board of Supervisors, as well as to the San Bernardino Community College Board of Trustees, on which he served from 2005-12.
James and his wife of 28 years, Terri, are the proud parents of four children and have three grandchildren.
