DeKalb Fraternal Order Of Police Endorses Carter For Congress

The following is a press release from the Liz Carter for Congress campaign:

In a unanimous vote, the DeKalb Fraternal Order of Police have endorsed Republican Liz Carter in her campaign to unseat incumbent Hank Johnson.

In a statement released by the organization, they stated their disappointment in the current District 4 representation. They further stated that Liz had met with the board and members to discuss issues important to officers and the public. “She is a staunch supporter of law enforcement and has studied pending legislation important to us.” In addition, “Liz is no politician. She’s a savvy businesswoman with over 20 years of real-world experience as an executive and job creator.”

“I am both thrilled and humbled to have received this important endorsement,” said Carter. “I do not take this endorsement lightly, as I have a great respect for these men and women who put it all on the line everyday to keep our families and businesses safe."

“The DeKalb FOP is the largest law enforcement organization in the District. They see that we need a change here in District 4. When I’m in Congress, all of our first responders will have a strong advocate. I look forward to working with the DeKalb FOP towards a victory in July and in November. With support like theirs, our campaign is getting stronger by the day,” Carter said.

The Carter campaign has continued its string of endorsements that demonstrate Liz’s commitment to the community, including the Gwinnett Sheriff Butch Conway, the Republicans of Morehouse College, Mayor Bucky Johnson of Norcross, State Representative Mike Jacobs and more.

The Republican Primary will be held on July 20 and the General Election is November 2.
