Three major police unions threw their support behind Councilman Eric Ulrich’s re-election campaign this week, saying on the steps of City Hall that the incumbent has been a staunch defender of New York’s bravest.
The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the Captains Endowment Association, and the Lieutenants Benevolent Association all endorsed Ulrich, who is running to once again represent the 32nd Council District.
“I am truly honored to receive the endorsement of the New York City police unions,” Ulrich said. “Contrary to the professional police critics, I have always believed that Commissioner Ray Kelly and the men and women of the NYPD do an outstanding job. I fully support them and want them to have the tools they need, including stop-and-frisk, to fight crime and keep our neighborhoods safe.”
