Endorsed by PBA of:

- State’s University Police

- Environmental Conservation Police

- Park Police

- Forest Rangers

"The 1,200 men and women of the PBA of NYS need legislators like Mark Walczyk who understand the important job we do.  In his first term, Mark had our back and was a phone call away for our Police Officers,” said Ryan Law, PBA President & University Police Officers Director.


With Election Day only three weeks away, Assemblyman Mark Walczyk announced Monday that he has picked up the endorsement of the Police Benevolent Association of New York State (PBA of NYS).


PBA of NYS was established in 2011 and has a membership of nearly 1,200 officers, with members from the State’s University Police, Environmental Conservation Police, Park Police and Forest Rangers.  The PBA fights for their members everyday so they can continue to safeguard New York’s assets that span across the state.  The PBA of NYS feels that Walczyk’s proven record of common sense and supporting law enforcement make him the clear choice to represent the 116th Assembly District.


"I'm humbled by the endorsement of the PBA of NYS,” said Assemblyman Mark Walczyk. “While citizens were gathering supplies and hunkering down this spring, all four units that make up the PBA of NYS including the University Police, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Police Division of Law Enforcement, New York State Park Police and New York State Forest Rangers are working around the clock to keep us all safe. Making sure these men and women have the resources and safety measures on the job so they can return to their families daily should always be a bipartisan priority."


This endorsement from the PBA of NYS is the most recent for Assemblyman Mark Walczyk as he continues his reelection campaign for a second term in the Assembly.  So far, Walczyk has been endorsed by Unshackle Upstate, the NRA, the North Atlantic State Regional Council of Carpenters, Local 277, NYSUT, the state’s largest teacher’s union, the Ogdensburg Police Department Patrolman Benevolent Association, Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 73, CSEA, the NYSTPBA, the St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Association and the New York State Law Enforcement Officers Union, Council 82, Local 2390 and the New York State Police Investigators Association.
