YORKTOWN, NY – The Police Benevolent Association of New York City has endorsed Matt Slater for Yorktown Supervisor. The PBA of New York City represents more than 24,000 police officers.
Patrick Lynch, President of the PBA of New York City said, “Matt Slater’s commitment to public service and law enforcement is well recognized, and we believe he is well qualified to serve the people of Yorktown as Town Supervisor. We look forward to continuing to work with him towards our shared goal of a stronger, safer New York.”
“I am humbled and honored to have the support of New York’s finest; the PBA of New York City,” Slater said. “Our families deserve safe communities to grow and thrive. The members of the PBA of New York City are instrumental in making this mission a reality and I look forward to working with them, and all of our partners in law enforcement, to make sure our families are protected.”
