Mike Kavanagh, an independent voter running for Ulster County District Attorney, has earned the endorsement of the Police Chiefs Association of Ulster County.
The endorsement marks the sixth announced endorsement from a law enforcement-related organization in Ulster County in this election contest; all six have been for Mr. Kavanagh.
In the endorsement, PCAUC President Scott Schaffrick (Chief of Police of the Town of Rosendale), writes, “…it has been our honor to have worked and served with both candidates seeking the position of Ulster County District Attorney… each candidate has served in the position of Chief Assistant District Attorney and have an extensive history of criminal prosecution.”
“However, as the District Attorney, one must lead the agency by example, maintain accountability for the agency, and provide a team dedicated to our communities. It is based upon these traits… that the Police Chiefs of Ulster County are endorsing Michael Kavanagh to represent the people of Ulster County as our District Attorney.”
