BREAKING NEWS: Santa Clara Police and Firefighters Dump Caserta

By Robert Haugh

Dominic Caserta is losing endorsements faster than a speeding police car … or fire truck.

Two popular Santa Clara political groups that have always supported Caserta just dumped him. Here’s the text of their joint press release. We’ll have updates on Friday of other organizations and people that have dropped endorsements of Caserta.

A joint press release was issued by the two organizations:

Santa Clara Police Officers’ Association and Santa Clara Firefighters Local 1171 Withdraw support and endorsements for Supervisor candidate and Santa Clara City Councilmember Dominic Caserta

In light of the allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior being levied against Santa Clara County Supervisor candidate and Santa Clara City Councilmember Dominic Caserta, the Santa Clara Police Officers’ Association and Santa Clara Firefighters Local 1171 have withdrawn their support and endorsement of his candidacy.

The allegations, involving both repeated and egregious incidents, represent everything the Santa Clara Police Officers’ Association and Santa Clara Firefighters Local 1171 stands ready to defend against. We are both disappointed in Mr. Caserta and committed to strenuously and transparently seeking justice on behalf of all victims. The members of SCPOA and IAFF Local 1171 stand shoulder to shoulder with the community in demanding accountability.

  1. These rumblings of sexual misconduct are well over a decade old with former high school students.
    Let that sink in.

    What did SCUSD know and what did they do and not do about it?

    This is not just about an isolated incident. It is about a pattern of behavior.
    And it is about a school district that did NOT have the students best interest at heart.
    And a union that should have a zero tolerance when it comes to sexual misconduct.

    Regarding the police and firefighters endorsement. Surely some of them should have known
    something was seriously amiss with Caserta. Did anyone know? If so, did they choose to look
    the other way because they “liked him?”
