Andrew Roraback has been endorsed by the State Police Union, he announced in a release issued Friday.
“Senator Roraback respects and understands the important job that the men and women of the Connecticut State Police perform each day,” Union President Andrew Matthews said in a release. ”His concern for public safety has been proven repeatedly through his support for maintaining the minimum staffing of 1,248 troopers, opposing the layoff of fifty-six troopers and, challenging the merge of State Police Troops and dispatch consolidation. We are confident that Senator Roraback will eontinue his suppoit for Connecticut State Troopers if he is elected to Congress.”
Roraback said the endorsement was an honor.
“I am honored to have earned the support of the brave men and women who serve on the front lines everyday protecting the public,” Roraback said.
