Crime Victims United of California Endorses Joe Patterson

Rocklin, Calif. — Today Republican Joe Patterson announced the endorsement of Crime Victims United of California, one of the most recognizable advocate organizations for crime victims and their families.

“Crime Victims United of California has set the standard for victims’ rights not just in California but around the country. Crime Victims United of California is truly a force on behalf of crime victims and public safety and it is an extreme honor to have their support,” said Joe Patterson.

Crime Victims United of California was formed in 1990 by Harriet Salarno after her daughter Catina Rose Salarno was senselessly murdered on her first day of college at 18 years old. Harriet’s efforts have strengthened public safety and given victims a voice in the State Capitol.

Joe Patterson is the overwhelming choice of public safety in the campaign for the 5th Assembly District. Since the start of his campaign, Patterson announced endorsements from the following organizations:

Rocklin Police Officers’ Association
Placer County Sheriff Devon Bell
Placer County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association
Rocklin Firefighters
CAL FIRE Local 2881
