STOCKTON – A’s pitcher Dallas Braden said today he’s staying in Stockton, reversing a previous announcement that he planned to move out of frustration for City Hall’s handling of crime.

Braden, 29, made the statement at a campaign event where he announced his support for mayoral candidate Anthony Silva, who seeks to unseat incumbent Mayor Ann Johnston on Nov. 6.

In an anti-violence rally at Victory Park last month, Braden shouted to Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones in front of hundreds of residents and vowed to sell his home and leave town. Before that, he and his grandmother had been crime victims and police were slow to respond, drawing his ire, Braden said.
