Dear Congressman Cook:
On behalf of the California Association of Highway Patrolmen (CAHP), we would like to officially inform you of our endorsement of your re-election to the 8th Congressional District.
Both the active and retired members of the CAHP are sincerely appreciative of having the opportunity to work with you on issues affecting law enforcement, the California Highway Patrol and the citizens of California. Through your actions, you have demonstrated a real concern for the safety of the public and the members of our Association. We appreciate the cooperative relationship that exists between you and our representatives.
We hope our endorsement of your candidacy will assist you, and more importantly, the voters in the 8th Congressional District. We look forward to a good working relationship with you in the years to come.
Cook stated, "I've always stood with law enforcement, and that's not going to change. It's paramount that we provide them with the proper tools, training, and funding necessary to keep us safe and for them to stay safe themselves. I'm proud to earn the endorsement of the California Association of Highway Patrolmen, and I look forward to continuing my fight for public safety while in Congress."
