New City, NY – Ed Day, Rockland County Executive today announced the endorsement of the Police Benevolent Association of the City of New York (NYC PBA).
The NYC PBA is the largest municipal police union in the world. The NYC PBA represents the approximately 24,000 sworn NYPD members who hold the rank of Police Officer and wear a silver shield — the front-line police officers in radio cars and on foot posts in the neighborhood, as well as those in specialized units and administrative divisions throughout the city.
“Your commitment to addressing public safety issues is well recognized, and we believe that you are well qualified to serve the people of Rockland County as County Executive. We look forward to working with you towards our shared goal of a stronger, safer New York,” said NYC PBA President Patrick Lynch.
“I am proud to have the support of the members of the NYC PBA in my re-election as County Executive. Addressing public safety in New York City is important to Rockland County and the greater metropolitan area. Without the brave men and women of the NYPD, I can only imagine the trouble our region and state would be in. As a former member of the NYPD, I am grateful for their support and even more grateful for their service. I pray for their safety and protection as they work tirelessly to ensure ours,” Day said.
Ed Day is seeking his third term as Rockland County Executive. During his tenure he has turned an inherited $138 million deficit into a surplus, created the Rockland Center for Codes Investigations, and led Rockland through the COVID-19 pandemic with his “Safety First, People Always” initiative.
