Statewide police organization endorses Orange County GOP slate

CHESTER – The New York State Fraternal Order of Police Tuesday announced their endorsement for all of the Republicans seeking county-wide office in Orange County in next month’s general election.

The group endorsed County Executive Steven Neuhaus, District Attorney David Hoovler and County Clerk Annie Rabbitt for re-election.

For Rabbitt being backed by police touches very close to home.

“As a widow to a police chief, this year alone seeing what the thin blue line truly means – family,” Rabbitt said. “My daughter, who proudly wears the New York City uniform as a sergeant; my son, who I couldn’t be prouder of, works here local for one of the local departments this county has ever seen, and that is our sheriff’s department.”

The Fraternal Order of Police also endorsed William DeProspo for county court judge.

“We’ve got your backs,” Neuhaus told the police officers, who attended an endorsement announcement at GOP campaign headquarters in Chester.
