Following is the text of a statement by Anthony V. Solfaro, President of the New York State Union of Police Associations, speaking on behalf of the Union in endorsing Jimmy O'Donnell (R,C,Ref) for U.S. Congress:
On behalf of the New York State Union of Police Associations, Inc. (NYSUPA) I am pleased to convey the endorsement of this organization for your election to the 18th Congressional District.
NYSUPA's endorsement is a result of your support for the law enforcement community and your recognition of those officers as dedicated and hard working public employees who go out each and every day to serve the public at great personal risk and sacrifice. NYSUPA will be urging its membership, their families and their friends who reside in the 18th Congressional District to support your election.
It is our hope and expectation that voters will acknowledge your background, commitment and service that qualifies you to serve as the representative of the 18th Congressional District, and specifically your support for the law enforcement community on Election Day.
Wishing you success on Election Day, November 6th,
Anthony V. Solfaro
