Jason Raines for Sunnyside City Council
1726 Gregory Ave EXT
Sunnyside, WA 98944
Contact: Jason Raines
***For Immediate Release***
Sunnyside police officers, heavily engaged in a campaign against street gangs, have for the first time, endorsed a candidate for city council.
The Sunnyside Police Officers Guild is supporting Jason Raines, a former Army officer who now teaches school.
Police Guild President Robert Layman writes: “In a community that has had a large impact from criminal organizations and actions, Jason is intent on making this a place to raise a family and be safe while doing so.”
Raines has been a consistent advocate of the newly-created “Gang Unit” and the “Gang Elimination Strategy” mapped out by top police commanders.
The two-officer Gang Unit, working with the newly-hired Crime Analyst, have made numerous arrests in its first few weeks of operation. Many of these arrests of alleged gang members involved firearms and drugs.
