Goshen, NY (Oct 18th, 2018) -- Adding to the growing list of endorsements, the New York State Fraternal Order of Police (NYSFOP) today announced their enthusiastic support for Jimmy O’Donnell to represent the 18th congressional district. The letter is viewable here (PDF).
The NYSFOP is the oldest and largest national association of law enforcement professionals with more than 20,000 members across the State of New York.
“We have based our endorsement on Jimmy’s demonstrated and continued support of police professionals. Further, as police professionals who most experience the trauma and effects of criminal behavior wrecked upon our fellow citizens, we understand all too well the significance of dedicated public servants like Jimmy who possess the courage and compassion to promote the confidence in our government and our courts.”
“Having the support of so many of my brothers and sisters in law enforcement means the world to me,” said Mr. O’Donnell. “The men and women who keep us safe are essential to a civilized society that protects all citizens, and the decisions being made in Washington directly affect their ability to serve. I don’t need a lesson on what it takes to keep New Yorkers safe, and I’ll fight every day in Washington to ensure our law enforcement has the policies and resources they need to do their jobs.”
