Kathryn Nance, current President of the Stockton Police Officers Association and a 19-year member of the Stockton Police Department, today received the endorsement of California Congresswoman Mimi Walters in her campaign for Congress against incumbent Congressman Jerry McNerney.
“California needs capable leaders with the knowledge and experience to get things done in Congress. That’s why I’m proud to endorse and support Kathryn Nance in California’s 9th Congressional District,” said Congresswoman Walters. “Her lifelong ties to her district, as well as her 19 years of experience with the Stockton Police Department, widely known as one of the toughest beats in the state, give her the experience to represent her district effectively as well as the backbone to stand up to D.C special interests. I need a partner in Congress who will work to get things done, and that’s why Kathryn Nance has my full support.”
Walters was elected to Congress in 2014 to represent California’s 45th Congressional District, and was subsequently elected by her colleagues as the Freshman Class Representative to the House Republican Conference leadership team.
The 9th Congressional District encompasses the majority of San Joaquin County, most of Eastern Contra Costa County and the City of Galt in Sacramento County.
“I am honored to have the support of Congresswoman Mimi Walters and looking forward to working with her in Congress,” said Nance. “From agriculture to terrorism, Jerry McNerney has represented liberal out of touch values for far too long. I will be the common sense voice this District wants and needs.”
