Law Enforcement and Public Safety

  • What happened to George Floyd in Minneapolis this year was a horrendous tragedy. It was inexcusable, despicable, and should never happen in the United States of America. But, the overwhelming majority of our police and law enforcement officers are amazing examples of public servants who put their lives on the line every day to protect us.

  • But instead of working with police to find meaningful solutions to ensure this never happens again, some radicals want to defund the police. This is a reckless policy that would endanger all Americans. The police will never be abolished under my watch in Congress. That’s why I’m the only candidate in this race endorsed by the International Union of Police Associations.

  • Additionally, as a state representative, I fought for presumptive care for firefighters and I will do the same in Congress.
