Jerry McNerney Endorsed By California Fair Share

Stockton, CA – Rep. Jerry McNerney (CA-09) today announced he has earned the endorsement of California Fair Share, a national non-profit grassroots organization working to promote economic fairness and opportunity for all.

Rep. McNerney was one of only seven California incumbents to receive the endorsement of Fair Share. The organization said in its announcement that the Ninth District Representative was one of the “brave leaders who will fight for California’s families.”

“I’m proud to have earned the endorsement of California Fair Share,” said Rep. McNerney in a statement. “Before coming to Congress, I was a working father who took out a second mortgage to put my children through college. Our working families deserve a chance to succeed, and I will keep fighting in Washington to even the playing field. That includes making sure our kids have access to a quality education, working to create family-wage jobs, making sure the wealthiest pay their fair share of the tax burden, and limiting the influence of money in politics.”

As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. McNerney has consistently voted for legislation that helps middle class families succeed.  He has introduced bills to help homeowners struggling with foreclosure, increase access to student financial aid, encourage young women to pursue STEM (Science, Math, Engineering, and Mathematics) careers, and help our veterans find jobs.
