CAMINO — Flanked by Rico Oller supporters, retired senator H.L. Richardson announced that the Gun Owners of California Campaign Committee (GOCCC), is endorsing Richard Barb in El Dorado County’s runoff election for Supervisor in District 3.
Barb’s endorsement came during Richardson’s speech to approximately 120 community leaders attending Oller’s fundraising barbecue at High Hill Ranch on Aug. 25. GOCCC has also endorsed Rico Oller for state Assembly.
“It’s important that we elect leaders who understand our Constitution and the true intentions of our Founding Fathers,” said Richardson, who is also a resident of El Dorado County. “GOCCC has carefully considered this race and is proud to endorse Richard Barb for Supervisor here in El Dorado County.”
“It is critical that we elect leaders like Richard Barb who understand that the amendments added to our Constitution in the Bill of Rights are individual safeguards put there to protect us from overreaching government. We also need to elect more leaders, like Richard Barb, who bring their wholesome family values and concern for freedom and liberty to public office,” said Richardson.
“Richard Barb is a certified Range Safety Officer, family man, 4-H Leader, first lieutenant in the Civil Air Patrol, and licensed contractor with a vision for fixing our business climate and rebuilding our local economy,” said Richardson.
Gun Owners of California was founded by Richardson in 1975. Gun Owners of California Campaign Committee is the nation’s oldest political action committee dedicated to the defense of the Second Amendment and the preservation of shooting sports.
The election will be on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
