Shielding Our Protectors

FOP of Ohio Endorses Ed FitzGerald for Governor
Updated On: Oct 08, 2014

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

The Ohio Fraternal Order of Police, the state's largest police organization representing 25,000 active and retired law enforcement officers, today endorsed Ed FitzGerald for the office of Governor. The endorsement was made by the 313 delegates attending the 80th annual conference in Dublin, Ohio.


"The members of the Fraternal Order of Police are not experiencing "the era of good feeling". The communities we serve are experiencing a heroin epidemic and rising property crime rates and our public safety forces do not have the resources they need due to cuts in local government funding", remarked President Jay McDonald of the Fraternal Order of Police.


"Ed FitzGerald was one of our strongest allies in the fight against SB 5/Issue 2", said FOP President Jay McDonald. "Ohio's Law Enforcement Officers believe that Ed FitzGerald respects them and understands the needs of those who have sworn an oath to protect our communities.


The delegates also endorsed:


Auditor: John Patrick Carney

Attorney General: David Pepper

Secretary of State: Jon Husted

Treasurer: Connie Pillich

Supreme Court: Judith French and Sharon Kennedy


State Secretary Mark Drum stated: "The endorsements were not based along party lines, but were instead a vote for the best candidates who would back the positions of the FOP. Our members voted to endorse the candidates they feel will best support Ohio's law enforcement officers.”
