We were teamed up to search for a missing Hanford child, we searched along the Kings River. Nicole has long ties to Kings County and has shown she can clearly work with everyone, regardless of political affiliation. She has a bi-partisan endorsement list, which is very impressive. I am proud to add my name to that list,” declared Sheriff Robinson.
