for Orange County Supervisor
Anaheim, Tim Clark
May 25, 2010
Today, Crime Victims United of California announced the endorsement of Orange County Businessman and Mayor Pro Tem Harry Sidhu for the open 4th Supervisor District seat.
“Mayor Pro Tem Harry Sidhu has been an advocate for tougher law enforcement and stronger victims’ rights,” said Crime Victims United of California President Harriet Salarno. “His opponent, Shawn Nelson, is no friend to crime victims. Shawn Nelson is a defense attorney whose law firm has advertised its expertise at defending some of the worst criminals in our society, including sex crimes, home invasion, and even murder. Voters should reject Shawn Nelson’s candidacy for higher office.”
Crime Victims United of California is the only organization of its kind - using education, legislative advocacy and political action to enhance public safety, promote effective crime-reduction measures and strengthen the rights of crime victims.
Crime Victims United of California joins a long list of Orange County leaders supporting Harry Sidhu, including Board of Supervisors Chair Janet Nguyen and Vice Chair Bill Campbell, Board of Equalization Member Michelle Steel, Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle, Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and Gary Miller, State Senators Bob Huff and Tom Harman, Assemblyman and former Supervisor Jim Silva, Assemblyman Jeff Miller, the California Republican Assembly, Orange County Taxpayers Association PAC, and Republican National Committeeman Shawn Steel, among dozens of others.
Mayor Pro Tem Harry Sidhu was first elected to the Anaheim City Council in 2004 and was overwhelmingly re-elected to a second term in 2008. On the council, he quickly established a reputation as a tough-minded advocate for streamlined, efficient government and as a champion of small business. Harry also ensured the protection of property rights through the successful passage of a City Charter Amendment prohibiting eminent domain abuse. As a local business owner, he employs over 120 people with sales of close to $5 million a year.
