San Antonio Police Officers Association Endorses Gov. Perry for Re-Election

February 10, 2010

Gov. Rick Perry today received the endorsement of the San Antonio Police Officers Association (SAPOA) for re-election.

“Gov. Perry has been a relentless advocate of the law enforcement community and always championed our legislative agenda,” said Dean Fischer, Vice President of the San Antonio Police Officers Association. “The resources that the State of Texas has provided to police across the state under Gov. Perry’s watch have helped modernize and improve how we protect and serve our communities. For these reasons the San Antonio Police Officers Association is proud to endorse Governor Rick Perry in the Texas Republican primary on March 2, 2010.”

The San Antonio Police Officers Association, an organization whose primary purpose is to benefit police officers and their families, was established in 1946 and consists of over 2,000 members.

“The sacrifices Texas peace officers make day in and day out to protect our communities and secure our state are crucial to upholding our state’s outstanding quality of life,” said Gov. Perry. “I am incredibly proud of our law enforcement community, especially the San Antonio Police Officers Association, and grateful for their dedicated service and support. I remain committed to ensuring our peace officers have the tools they need to keep Texans safe.”
