Law enforcement Urges Votes

Letter To The Editor - Hometownsource.com Press & News Maple Grove - Oct 28, 2022

Rising crime is a statewide problem, and we must restore public safety in our communities. That starts with respecting police as partners and holding violent criminals accountable. These candidates will make sure our public safety officials have the support, resources, and policies that provide for a safer, stronger community for everyone.

That’s why the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association supports and endorses Sen. Hoffman, Sen. Limmer, Kohler, Rep. McDonald, Hudson, Nadeau, Rep. Robbins, and Bristol. We hope you will join us in voting for them.

I have known John for several years and first met him when he contacted me to assist in facilitating a donation from the football boosters to support the students on the football team and everyone else who uses the high school field.
