FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE OF OHIO ENDORSE
FRIENDS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR 2018 ELECTIONS

Independence, OH –The Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio (FOP) today announced endorsements for the 2018 Ohio elections. The FOP voted board voted on recommendations and made the endorsements at the conclusion of their annual conference.

Ohio FOP President Gary Wolske said the six endorsed candidates share the FOP’s values and will stand for officers and their families.

“These candidates share our values and have proven a willingness to fight for our members,” Wolske said. “We’re supporting them, because we know they will support us.”

Statewide, the FOP endorsed the following candidates:

Sherrod Brown for United States Senator

Richard Cordray for Governor

Steve Dettelbach for Attorney General

Frank LaRose for Secretary of State

Zack Space for Auditor

Rob Richardson for Treasurer

Melody Stewart for Supreme Court

Michael Donnelly for Supreme Court

Wolske says it’s more important than ever to support candidates and elected officials who will in turn support officers.

“Too many people are quick to blame police and second guess the work we do. That’s a slippery slope,” Wolske said. “A lot of folks want to make police scapegoats for all the problems in society. That’s simply not the case, police departments around the state are made up of men and women who want to make their communities safer and provide for their families. We need elected officials who will recognize that and who will work on important priorities like PTSD coverage for law enforcement.”

The Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio is Ohio’s largest law enforcement union. They represent over 30,000 sworn officers and advocate for law enforcement on a variety of issues.
