The East Bay Animal PAC, which was founded earlier this year, has made its first formal candidate endorsement. The PAC voted unanimously to endorse incumbent Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley in her bid for re-election.
Nancy O’Malley addressed the group in July and spoke to the East Bay Animal PAC general membership about animal issues from her unique perspective in law enforcement. She discussed how her office responds to animal abuse, the link between animal abuse and domestic violence and the the roles that animals play in helping to heal victims of sexual abuse.
“District Attorney Nancy O’Malley has been a nationally recognized figure on issues related to domestic violence, women and children,” stated East Bay Animal PAC chair Michael Colbruno. “She has now expanded those groundbreaking efforts to include protections for animals, as well as identifying the links between those who abuse animals before they turn to domestic violence. It is critical that she is returned to office where she can continue protecting the most vulnerable members of our community.”
