STOCKTON - Though she said the official announcement of her candidacy won't come until later this month, it's clear Stockton police Sgt. Kathryn Nance is running for Congress.
Nance, a Republican, hopes to unseat 5-time Rep. Jerry McNerney, claiming the incumbent has under served Stockton and San Joaquin County during his time in Congress.
"If I thought everything was great, and the representative was doing everything he could, why would I change that?" Nance said. "I think there's a lack of involvement and you see it in several areas. You see it with water issues, you see it with crime rates, and you see it with economics."
Nance is married to a cop and the mother of four. She's also the head of the Stockton Police Union. Nance said working for the union elevated her interest in politics.
