PBA ENDORSES CUOMO FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL

The New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the largest municipal police union in the nation, today endorsed Andrew Cuomo for election as the Attorney General of the State of New York.

NYC PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Most police officers join the force to help people. Andrew Cuomo, the New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association’s choice for Attorney General, shares our values and that commitment. No other candidate in this race has the record of results, the integrity and the commitment to stand up for law enforcement that Andrew Cuomo will bring to the office of Attorney General. From his start as a young prosecutor under Manhattan D.A. Robert Morgenthau, to his standing up to reckless gun dealers and manufacturers, to his bringing in the FBI to crack down on fraud, waste and corruption at HUD, Andrew Cuomo has made a difference. From his work with local police to curb crime in housing projects in the toughest cities, to his launch of the Officers Next Door Program, Andrew Cuomo will continue to be law enforcement’s toughest advocate. The New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association wholeheartedly endorses Andrew Cuomo for Attorney General of the State of New York. We are proud to stand with him today.”

The New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association represents approximately 50,000 active and retired New York City Police Officers.
