The Louisiana Sheriffs' and Deputies' proudly announce their endorsement of Garret Graves, in his run for re-election for U.S. Congress serving Louisiana's Sixth Congressional District. According to the Louisiana Sheriffs' Associations Political Action Committee Chairman, West Baton Rouge Sheriff Mike Cazes, "It is the decision of the Sheriffs of District 6 to support Congressman Graves in his forthcoming election on November 8th, 2016."
In issuing the endorsement, Sheriff Cazes said, "Congressman Graves has proven to be a strong supporter of Louisiana's Sheriffs and their constituents. Most recently, he fought to help Louisiana receive additional support during the Great Flood of 2016. Additionally, he worked with the U.S. Department of Justice to gain recovery support for law enforcement after our recent officer shootings. The Louisiana Sheriffs' Associations Political Action Committee and the sheriffs of District 6 are proud to support Congressman Graves in his run for re-election to Congress.
The Louisiana Sheriffs' Association is a bipartisan organization, composed of Louisiana's 64 sheriffs and nearly 14,000 deputy sheriffs, established to represent Louisiana's chief law enforcement officers across the state. The Association's purpose is to maintain the constitutional authority of sheriff as chief law enforcement officer, ensure delivery of first rate services, and to sponsor legislation that promotes the administration of criminal justice.
