Statewide law enforcement group backs Skoufis for Senate

Assemblyman and Senate candidate James Skoufis announced Wednesday that the New York State Union of Police Associations has endorsed him in for the 39th Senate District race.

In a July endorsement letter supplied by Skoufis’ campaign, Anthony Solfaro, president of the Newburgh-based organization, said that his group was backing the third-term assemblyman for his support for the law enforcement community, and that it will urge its members and their families and friends to vote for Skoufis.

“Working with our local men and women in blue has been important to me as part of my commitment to building safer communities for our families,” Skoufis said in a press release. “I look forward to continuing to partner with law enforcement in the State Senate to ensure that they have the resources and support necessary to do their job to the fullest.”

Skoufis, a Woodbury Democrat, is competing with Republican Tom Basile, a Stony Point councilman, for the Senate seat that Bill Larkin is vacating.
