Bianco joins San Bernardino Sheriff Shannon Dicus in Backing Ochoa Bogh for State Senate

Yucaipa, CA – Today, the Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh for State Senate campaign announced the endorsement of Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco.

“We face new challenges because of laws and mandates that are causing an increase in crime. State Senator Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh’s strong convictions, determination, and work ethic have made her a strong ally of law enforcement’s,” stated Sheriff Bianco. “I trust Senator Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh because she has shown the toughness to do what’s right, to keep our streets safe, and she’ll always fight for her constituents.”
