Total climbs to over 74,000 members of law enforcement
Ed Day, candidate for Rockland County Executive, last week announced the endorsement of three law enforcement organizations, the Lieutenants Benevolent Association, the Detectives’ Endowment Association and the Sergeants Benevolent Association.
The three organizations represent more than 32,000 active and retired members of the NYPD. Including two previous endorsement by the National Latino Officers Association and the Council of United Emerald Societies the tally has grown to over 74,000 members of law enforcement, first responders and public works employees behind Day’s bid for Rockland County Executive.
“As a retired member of the New York City Police Department and as a Rockland County Legislator, Ed Day has repeatedly shown that he has all the qualifications and characteristics needed to be successful as the Rockland County Executive. His knowledge of Rockland County issues is unparalleled, and I am confident that he will continue to serve his constituents with fresh and new ideas,” said Edward Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association.
“We trust Ed will work diligently, as a retired member of the Service, on issues that will affect law enforcement and labor communities,” said Michael Pallidino, President of the Detectives’ Endowment Association.
“For his commitment and dedication to the safety and enhanced quality of life for the citizens of New York, the Lieutenants Benevolent Association of the New York City Police Department proudly supports Ed Day for election to Rockland County Executive,” Louis Turco, President of the Lieutenants Benevolent Association said.
“I am pleased to have the support of so many of my brothers in law enforcement. If there is anyone who knows of hard work and dedication it’s the people who serve our community on the front lines. As Rockland County Executive I will proudly serve in the same way I served my community in law enforcement and as a County Legislator,” Day said.
