Boonsboro – Citizens for Jessica’s Law, the grassroots organization that has pushed for the passing of stricter sentences and closer monitoring of child sex offenders, has endorsed Chris Shank for State Senate in District 2.

“Chris Shank was not only instrumental in the passage of Jessica’s Law but he has been a tireless advocate for the safety of our children,” said Joan Harris, President of Citizens for Jessica’s Law. “Chris led the effort in closing the loophole in registration laws requiring sex offenders once hidden in our communities to register.
