The San Bernardino Police Officers Association is endorsing Scott Beard for City Council in the 7th Ward Runoff Election against incumbent Jim Mulvihill.
“The San Bernardino Police Officers Association is endorsing local business owner Scott Beard for City Council in Ward 7,” said Steve Turner, president of the San Bernardino Police Officers Association.
“The most important job of the City Council is to keep the people of San Bernardino safe, and safety is Scott Beard’s top priority,” said Turner. “He is committed to putting more police officers on the street and ensuring that we have the tools necessary to protect San Bernardino’s residents and families at all times.”
“As a successful local business owner, Scott Beard also has the knowledge, experience, plus the proven commitment to helping turn San Bernardino’s economy around,” Turner said.
“Compared to incumbent Jim Mulvihill, Scott Beard is obviously the better candidate,” Turner continued. “Jim Mulvihill has done nothing to put more police officers on the street. During Mulvihill’s time on the City Council, drastic cuts have been made to the police department that have weakened basic public safety services. He has not earned another term in office. We urge the voters of the 7th Ward to replace him with Scott Beard.”
