Sheriff Scott Jones Declines to Participate in The Sacramento Bee Endorsement Interviews

(Sacramento, CA) – Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones today sent a letter to The Sacramento Bee explaining why he will decline to participate in the paper's endorsement interviews for the 3rd Congressional District.

"Let me be clear, I value free, fair, and thorough journalism. Unfortunately, with rare exception, The Bee and their Editorial Staff have proven time and time again that they do not share the same values. I have always welcomed honest critique; however, The Bee has resorted to name calling, mischaracterizations, and demonstrated multiple times that they would rather bend a story to fit their own narrative than report facts." - Sheriff Scott Jones

Sheriff Jones is endorsed by Crime Victims United of California, California State Sheriff's Association, Gun Owners of America, conservative leaders Congressman Tom McClintock, Congressman Doug LaMalfa, Congressman Darrell Issa, State Senator Jim Nielsen, and former or current Sheriffs in all 10 counties in CA-03.

Sheriff Jones accomplished a strong record of leadership at the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, stewarding the Department’s recovery from the worst financial crisis of its history, becoming a regional leader in the fight against gangs, and hiring a record number of women, minorities, and veterans. As one of the foremost experts on law enforcement in California, Sheriff Jones has been an advocate for investing in public safety and a vocal opponent of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement. In Congress, Jones will be an advocate for fiscal accountability, border security, and restoring criminal justice to America’s communities. A nationally recognized law enforcement leader, Jones has testified before Congress, and has presented at two White House conferences on law enforcement, immigration, and safety issues.

California’s 3rd Congressional District includes the Counties of Placer, Nevada, Mono, Sierra, Inyo, Plumas and Alpine and portions of Sacramento, El Dorado, and Yuba Counties. It is an open seat and Republicans hold a 7-point registration advantage.
