SANTA ANA, CA—Senator Lou Correa today announced endorsements from Orange County’s law enforcement leaders and public safety groups including Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackaukus, Orange County Cops (OC Cops), the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs, the Fountain Valley Police Officers Association, Garden Grove Police Officers Association and Santa Ana Police Officers Association. OC Cops is the umbrella organization for 16 local law enforcement agencies.
“Senator Lou Correa’s law enforcement record is impeccable,” said Sheriff Sandra Hutchens. ”He strengthened laws aimed at stopping sexual predators, fought against criminals gaining early release, and delivered needed funds for deputies to patrol our communities here in Orange County.”
“Senator Correa wrote the law expanding use of DNA to convict violent sex predators and rapists,” said District Attorney Tony Rackauckus. “We can count on Lou Correa to be a great County Supervisor.”
“Senator Correa brought more fire protection money to Orange County so we could keep firehouses open,” said Joe Kerr, President Emeritus, Orange County Firefighters Association. “That’s Lou’s record and that’s why we support him for County Supervisor.”
Correa served central Orange County in the State Senate from 2006 to 2014. He has also served on the Orange County Board of Supervisors and in the California State Assembly from 1998 to 2004.
Prior to serving in the California State Legislature, he was an investment banker and a real estate broker. He holds a degree in economics from California State University, Fullerton, and a Juris Doctor (JD) and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Senator Correa lives in Santa Ana with his wife and their four children.
