(Warwick) – On Tuesday, the RI State Lodge of Fraternal Order of Police unanimously endorsed Allan Fung for Governor. The second major law enforcement endorsement in as many weeks, it’s a testament to Mayor Fung’s leadership and the respect he’s garnered inside the community going back to his days as a prosecutor.
“During his time as Mayor, Allan Fung has shown to be an honest and highly effective leader who puts safety as a top priority. We know he will stand by law enforcement and he will make a fantastic Governor,” said President of the Rhode Island State Lodge of Fraternal Order of Police, Robert Quinn.
“I’m so grateful for the unanimous endorsement of the State FOP. Our brothers and sisters in law enforcement work so hard under conditions that, at times, feel overwhelming. From being on the front lines of the opioid crisis, to responding to gang violence in the capital city, to establishing good partnerships via community policing, their jobs are intense and dangerous. I can’t thank them enough for all they do, and for their support in this election” said Mayor Fung.
