FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE, LODGE 7, ENDORSE BRAD STEPHENS FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE
Chicago FOP Credits Stephens Strong Support for Police Officers and Keeping our Communities Safe
CHICAGO, IL – State Representative Brad Stephens has earned the coveted endorsement of Chicago’s police officers, a major constituency in the 20th District.
“The Fraternal Order of Police, Chicago Lodge #7 President Catanzara and the Board of Directors proudly endorse Brad Stephens for Illinois State Representative of the 20th District. Representative Stephens supports and holds Chicago Police Officers and Law Enforcement in the highest regard. His number one priority is public safety and protecting each neighborhood. He will continue helping and serving the 20th District, as well as all Illinoisans.”
Representative Stephens stated, “I am honored to have the endorsement of Chicago’s FOP. I proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with the men and women in law enforcement who risk their lives on a daily basis to protect our communities. Our men and women in blue deserve to know that they have a strong ally in Springfield. I look forward to continuing my work as an advocate for our first responders and all the residents of the 20th District.”
Stephens has made the issue of crime one of the top issues in the campaign. While some elected officials talk of defunding, Stephens will fight for more resources for better training and mental health support, work to strengthen laws to keep dangerous criminals off our streets, ensure our police have the tools they need to keep our neighborhoods, and themselves safe, and support them after they have served.
Stephens added, “I have spoken to dozens and dozens of business owners and families who feel the leadership of the corrupt Democratic machine who brought us Mike Madigan, Kim Foxx and Michele Darbro is more concerned with celebrating looters and releasing felons then protecting hard-working families and businesses. That is why Chicago’s FOP is supporting me over my opponent.”
