Kern Sheriff Youngblood Endorses Lackey for Assembly
PALMDALE – Today, Tom Lackey added the key endorsement of Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood in his race for the 36th Assembly District.
“Tom has nearly 30 years of experience serving in law enforcement and knows firsthand the importance of public safety issues. He will fight in Sacramento to protect our families just as he did on our streets and highways throughout his career in law enforcement,” said Sheriff Youngblood. “As someone who was raised in the small town of Boron here in Kern County, he understands the needs of our community and has a passion for public service.”
Sheriff Youngblood’s endorsement adds to a growing list of community leaders who are supporting Lackey’s race to replace current Antelope Valley Assemblyman Steve Fox. Youngblood has served as Kern County Sheriff since 2006 and had worked in the department as a deputy for 30 years prior to his election as Sheriff.
“Kern County is blessed to have a Sheriff like Donny Youngblood,” said Lackey. “He has raised the level of safety for the residents of Kern County, and I look forward to working with him in the future.”
Tom Lackey has served as a California Highway Patrol officer since 1985 and recently retired as a sergeant. He is also the Mayor Pro Tem for the City of Palmdale and represents the City Council as a delegate on the Citizens Advisory Committee for California State Prison – Los Angeles County.
As an Assemblyman, Lackey plans to continue providing both commonsense and conservative leadership, making sure the region has a voice in Sacramento. Tom Lackey and his wife Theresa, live in Palmdale with their two adopted children, Justin and Jani.
