Former Senate District 16 Candidate

“David Shepard understands the needs of Central Valley families and will be a fierce advocate for public safety in Sacramento. He has my full support for State Senate.”

Tulare Sheriff Mike Boudreaux

“David Shepard is uniquely positioned to win in Senate District 16 and deliver results for Central Valley families. David is dedicated, hard- working, and most importantly, will fight for the values of the Central Valley. He has my full support and backing in his campaign for State Senate.”


“David Shepard will bring a much-needed fresh perspective to Sacramento and deliver on the issues that matter to working valley families: increased water infrastructure, new jobs and opportunity, and improved public safety.”

Congresswoman Connie Conway

“David Shepard is a farmer, father, and community leader — a true son of the Central Valley. He will fight back against Sacramento overreach and work hard to preserve our way of life.”

Senator Shannon Grove

“We need new leaders like David Shepard who will fight for water, agriculture, public safety, and Central Valley jobs. David cares about our community and will get the job done as our State Senator.”

Assemblyman Vince Fong

“We need strong leaders representing Tulare County in the State Senate and David Shepard has the experience and commitment to serve our community well. I look forward to working with him as our next State Senator.”
