Madera County Sheriff Jay Varney has announced his endorsement of Sally Orme Moreno for Madera County District Attorney in the June 5 Primary Election.
“I have reviewed all three of the candidates running for district attorney and Sally is the most qualified,” said Sheriff Varney. “Sally already has a great working relationship with other law enforcement agencies, victim services agencies and other groups that help us keep Madera a safe county.”
Sheriff Jay Varney is joining former Sheriff John Anderson in endorsing Orme Moreno for district attorney.
She has also received endorsements from the Madera Deputy Sheriff’s Association, the Madera Probation Peace Officers Association and the Police Officers Research Association of California (PORAC).
“Having Sheriff Jay Varney’s endorsement is an honor,” Orme Moreno said in a prepared statement. “As a prosecutor who has convicted some of the toughest criminals in Madera County, I am committed to work with all law enforcement agencies to ensure safety for every family in Madera County,” stated Orme Moreno.
Orme Moreno was a Major in the US Army and is a former police officer. She has been an attorney since 1995 and is a career prosecutor.
She is running against incumbent David Linn and Madera County Senior Deputy DA Paul Hornick. The two receiving the most votes in June will advance to the November General Election.
