Grass Valley Mayor Dan Miller, a candidate for Nevada County supervisor, District 3, has received endorsements from local law enforcement officials and associations.
In a letter dated April 18, Miller was notified by Brian Hooper, president of the Grass Valley Police Officers Association, that the association — after interviewing Miller and his opponent — voted to endorse Miller. In the letter, Hooper said the GVPOA does not take the matter of political endorsements lightly and believes Miller is “the most qualified to represent District 3.”
Miller also received the endorsement of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Management Association, comprised of management staff at the sheriff’s office as well as criminal investigators at the district attorney’s office. In an April 15 letter signed by NCSMA President Bob Jakobs, the association said, “We choose to endorse candidates whom we feel will continue to work together with our local law enforcement in making public safety one of the highest priorities in this community.”
These two key endorsements follow on the heels of an earlier endorsement from Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal.
“I am honored to receive these endorsements,” Miller said.
“Bob Jakobs is absolutely correct when he says that public safety should be one of the highest priorities we have as a community and as public officials.”
Miller said he is reminded of the sacrifice and dedication of public safety employees each time he visits the Eric Rood Administrative Center and passes the memorial for public safety employees who have died in the line of duty.
“The history of Nevada County public safety is spelled out in the names that appear on that monument,” Miller said.
“Beginning with Sheriff William Wright in 1856 and continuing into modern times with others who have fallen in the line of duty, all of us owe a great debt of gratitude to the men and women who represent public safety in all its forms.”
