ALBANY, NY – The Police Conference of New York, which is the state's largest and oldest law enforcement association, has endorsed Matt Slater for the New York State Assembly. PCNY was founded in 1925 and now represents more than 50,000 law enforcement officers across the Empire State.
Richard Wells, President of PCNY said, "If we want to save New York we need to elect candidates who understand that cashless bail is destroying our state. In the 94th Assembly District, Matt Slater is that candidate. Matt Slater has proven himself a common sense pro law enforcement leader. PCNY proudly endorses him and looks forward to our work together fixing New York State."
Since taking the helm as Yorktown Supervisor, Slater has forged a strong partnership with local, county and state law enforcement. In February, an analysis by MoneyGeek named Yorktown one of the top 10 safest small towns in America.
Matt Slater said, "I am humbled and honored to have the support of New York State's preeminent law enforcement organization. Cashless bail has failed our communities and has made our State spiral out of control. I am committed to repealing this disastrous policy and replace it with one that actually protects our families, supports our communities and allows our police to do their jobs. Make no mistake, this year's election is a referendum on Albany's failed public safety policies and I am confident the voters will send an overwhelming message that they want to feel safe in their neighborhoods again."
The 94th Assembly District includes Carmel, Kent, Patterson, Putnam Valley, Somers, Southeast and parts of Yorktown. Election Day is November 8th.
