GLENS FALLS, NY –Today, the Police Conference of New York State (PCNY)unanimouslyendorsed Congresswoman Elise Stefanik for re-election. The PCNY is the largest police organization in New York State, representing approximately 50,000 New York Police Officers or retired New York Police officers, including nearly 1,000 that reside in NY-21. The PCNY is the preeminent professional police union in New York State, and its members are dedicated to improving conditions for our dedicated law enforcement officers.

“The Police Conference of New York is proud to unanimously endorse Congresswoman Stefanik for her re-election bid once again this year,”said Richard Wells, President of the Police Conference of New York.“With attacks on our law enforcement surging throughout New York and violent crime surging as well, this election couldn’t be more important. Elise is the only candidate in her race to stand up for New York police officers and Back the Blue repeatedly during this critical time. Unlike her Far-Left opponent, who will serve as a rubber stamp for the Democrats’ radical anti-police agenda, we know that Elise will always fight at the highest levels of the Federal Government to make sure that our law enforcement officers have the resources they need to keep our communities safe. We are so proud to have Elise represent us in Washington DC and look forward to working with her in the next Congress to pass her Pro Police laws.”

“I am proud to earn the support of the Police Conference of New York, the largest police organization in New York State. In Upstate New York and theNorth Country, law enforcement is part of the fabric and strength of our community,”said Congresswoman Stefanik.“I am the only candidate in this race with a proven track record of standing up for our law enforcement and fighting to ensure they have the resources and funding they need to keep our communities safe. I look forward to continuing to work with the PCNY to Back the Blue in Congress!”
