WHITE PLAINS, NY – The Westchester Hispanic Law Enforcement Association (WHLEA) has endorsed Matt Slater for Yorktown Supervisor. Established in 1996, WHLEA membership includes active and retired law enforcement officers from all over Westchester County, as well as members of State and Federal agencies. Many of WHLEA members are bilingual which has played a critical role in law enforcement as communities have become more diversified.
“It is an incredible honor to have the support of the Westchester Hispanic Law Enforcement Association,” said Matt Slater. “WHLEA has a strong history in Westchester County and continues to help build bridges between law enforcement and our local communities.”
Hector Lopez, Chairman of WHLEA said, “We believe Matt Slater will continue to put the citizens of Yorktown first. His accomplishments, while working together with former Senator Terrence Murphy, is a testament to his commitment to the people of Yorktown.”
Slater’s campaign continues to earn unprecedented support on the local, county and state levels. He is the first Supervisor candidate in more than four years to be endorsed by the New York League of Conservation Voters. Slater has also been endorsed by the Westchester-Putnam Central Labor Body, The Building and Construction Trades Council of Westchester-Putnam, the New York State Troopers PBA, Detectives’ Endowment Association and Lake Mohegan Professional Firefighters IAFF Local 2956.
