Sheriff says he agrees with her stance on law enforcement


Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood endorsed Shannon Grove in the Republican primary for the 32nd Assembly seat.

“Public safety is as important to her as it is to me,” the Sheriff said in a press conference at the Liberty Bell in Bakersfield on Tuesday

“I’m honored to have the support of Sheriff Youngblood, because that means he has looked closely at what each of the candidates will bring to the table in terms of law enforcement and overall good of our community and has decided to put his confidence in me. I thank the sheriff and I promise to give my very best to the job,” Grove said.

“It is extremely important that I have someone I can trust representing me. I have watched this race progress over the last several months,” Youngblood said. “I finally got to a point where I felt compelled to stand up and say Shannon Grove is the one I want representing me.”
