SACRAMENTO – On May 19-20, 2017, the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) Political Action Committee (PAC) attended the 2017 California Democratic Convention at the Sacramento Convention Center.

“This is a chance for us to hear from leaders in the Democratic Party, those serving here in Sacramento and those serving us in Washington, D.C.,” said CSLEA President Alan Barcelona.  “In addition, we were able to greet the elected office holders in a more private setting.  I am proud of how much we have grown politically over the years, and that’s a huge step for our members.  Our members can be assured we have a very big presence at the Capitol and that works in their favor as California lawmakers research legislation and act upon it.”
