NYS Union of Police Associations endorses O’Donnell for Congress

Republican House candidate and retired police commander Jim O’Donnell announced on Friday the endorsement of the New York State Union of Police Associations, a Newburgh-based labor organization for New York police officers and sheriff’s deputies.

“Jimmy O’Donnell is the definition of a public servant,” NYSUPA President Anthony Solfaro said in campaign press release. “He is a born leader who understands how to solve problems and get things done. At a time when national security and law enforcement issues are front and center, we need someone with Jimmy’s deep expertise and experience crafting these policies.”

O’Donnell is challenging Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-Cold Spring, for New York’s 18th Congressional District seat, which Maloney has held for six years. He worked for the state police for 23 years, retiring as a lieutenant colonel in 1997, and later served as MTA police chief for five years. He’s now an Orange County legislator.
