Ventura County native and former federal prosecutor, Jacobs, is prepared to lead and understands the law from a perspective that will elevate the public safety for civilians and police across CA-26

Ventura, Calif. – With almost a decade worth of experience as a federal prosecutor removing some of the world’s most dangerous criminals off the streets, the Ventura County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (VCDSA) Board of Directors asks Ventura constituents to take into consideration its recommendation of Matt Jacobs for Congress in the Primary Election on June 7, 2022.

Jacob’s support and demonstrated advocacy to law enforcement includes fighting policies that would pose a significant threat to the safety of Ventura County, which is an important consideration in the VCDSA endorsing him in the midterms this year.

Our community is one of the safest in the Country but changes in criminal laws are changing that. Jacob’s public safety judgment is sound, and his principles and ethics align with that of public safety and will provide policy to help keep our community a safe place to live.

“It is an honor for the Ventura County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association Board of Directors to announce our endorsement of the former federal prosecutor, Matt Jacobs for Congress (CA-26). Jacobs is adept at understanding the needs of our first responders and community in the form of policy and legislation, which can ultimately boost the public safety and quality of life for the people in Ventura County and beyond.”

Nick Odenath, Ventura County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association President

The Ventura County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (VCDSA) is the recognized bargaining unit for approximately 775 sworn peace officers in Ventura County.

Odenath extends that the Board of Directors of VCDSA is proud to endorse Matt Jacobs for Congress in 2022 because of his passion for public service, commitment to fighting for a safe community, and dedication to the citizens of Ventura County.

When Jacobs says that no one will work harder for CA-26 than him, we believe it, as he has kept his word on continuing to fight for a safer community and serve his hometown of Ventura County.
