Today the Michigan Association of Police Organizations (MAPO) announced their endorsement of State Senator Mark Schauer (D-Battle Creek) in his campaign for Michigan's 7th Congressional district.
"MAPO is proud to endorse Mark Schauer for Congress," said Richard Weiler, President of the Michigan Association of Police Organizations. "The law enforcement community is excited about the possibility of Mark bringing to Congress the same commitment to public safety that he exhibited in the Michigan Legislature. We look forward to calling him Congressman Schauer."
MAPO's eight member organizations represent three-fourths of the state's 19,500 certified police officers. Throughout his career in the Legislature, Sen. Schauer has fought for strong public safety services by making sure communities have adequate resources for police and fire protection.
Here is a list of all the folks involved-
Member organizations include: The Michigan State Police Troopers Association, the Michigan State Police Command Officers Association, the Police Officers Labor Council, the Michigan Association of Police, the Warren Police Officers Association, The Detroit Police Officers Association, The Detroit Lieutenants and Sergeants Association, and the Flint Police Officers Association.
That is a group you want by your side. Congratulations, Senator!
