Brea, CA – Today former Orange County Fire Captain Joe Kerr announced his campaign for Orange County’s 4th Supervisorial District. The seat, which is being vacated by term-limited Supervisor Shawn Nelson, includes all or portions of Anaheim, Brea, Buena Park, Fullerton, La Habra, and Placentia.
In announcing his campaign, Kerr stated:
"As a firefighter and fire captain for over 30 years, I learned how to evaluate complex situations, keep those around me composed, and implement a plan of action to protect people in danger. I think Orange County’s government needs this type of experience right now, and I am excited to announce my campaign.
On the Board of Supervisors, I will run toward the problems we face – including the growing homelessness crisis and the lack of transparency in county government. I will work hard every day to serve as the responsive and effective leader that our residents deserve."
