Feb 24, 2022 12:00AM ● By Sheriff Scott Jones for US Congress

SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones announced that he signed Americans for Tax Reform’s “Taxpayer Protection Pledge,” a pledge to oppose all new tax increases when elected to Congress.

“As Sheriff, I took a solemn pledge to protect and serve my community. It is with that same commitment that I sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to oppose all tax increases. Especially at a time with record high inflation, Americans, and especially Californians, are overtaxed and are often an afterthought when Congress decides where to spend their hard-earned tax dollars. I firmly believe that Americans should keep more of their own money, not send more and more to Washington politicians who continue to spend with impunity,” said Sheriff Jones.

Sheriff Jones accomplished a strong record of leadership at the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, stewarding the Department’s recovery from the worst financial crisis of its history, becoming a regional leader in the fight against gangs, and hiring a record number of women, minorities, and veterans. As one of the foremost experts on law enforcement in California, Sheriff Jones has been an advocate for investing in public safety and a vocal opponent of the ‘Defund the Police’ movement. In Congress, Jones will be an advocate for fiscal accountability, border security, and restoring criminal justice to America’s communities. A nationally recognized law enforcement leader, Jones has testified before Congress, and has presented at two White House conferences on law enforcement, immigration, and safety issues.

California’s 3rd Congressional District includes the Counties of Placer, Nevada, Mono, Sierra, Inyo, Plumas and Alpine and portions of Sacramento, El Dorado, and Yuba Counties. It is an open seat and Republicans hold a 7-point registration advantage.
