Assemblyman Mark Walczyk announced Friday that he’s been endorsed by the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association (NYSTPBA).


The Troopers PBA is the largest law enforcement union in the state.  Comprised of nearly 6,000 members, both active and retired.  The NYSTPBA voted unanimously to endorse Assemblyman Mark Walczyk during his bid to be reelected to the state Assembly for a second term.


“It’s beyond humbling to earn the backing of the NYS Troopers PBA,” said Assemblyman Mark Walczyk.  “These brave men and women put on their boots in the morning and don't know what they're going to encounter.  On any given day, they see the victims of homicide, suicide, rape, human trafficking, and scores of people having the worst day of their life.  We need more leaders in Albany that will stick up for them.  I’ll always have their back and I’m so grateful for their support of my reelection campaign.”   


"Albany's recent barrage of legislative proposals have done nothing to support law enforcement, especially New York State Troopers and it's never been more clear that we need lawmakers, like Assemblyman Mark Walczyk, who will stand up and 'back the blue'," said Thomas Mungeer, President of the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association (NYSTPBA).  "The NYSTPBA is proud to endorse Assemblyman Mark Walczyk for State Assembly.  Mark's record of fighting for our rights so we can protect our communities is critical to keeping the public safe.  Assemblyman Walczyk has our back, and we have his."


This is the latest endorsement Walczyk has received in his campaign to be elected to another term in the state Assembly.  Assemblyman Mark Walczyk was recently endorsed by the New York State Law Enforcement Officers Union, Council 82, Local 2390 and the state’s largest teachers union, NYSUT.
