Al Redmer, Jr. Earns Baltimore County Sheriff’s Union Endorsement in Race for County Executive
TOWSON, MD -- Al Redmer, Jr., Republican nominee for Baltimore County Executive, today announced his endorsement by the Baltimore County Sheriff’s Office Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #25. This is the first time the union has backed a Republican for the Baltimore County Executive position.
“I am tremendously humbled to receive the endorsement of the Baltimore County Sheriff’s Union, and would like to thank President Stephen White, Treasurer Charles Kish, and the entire union for the support and trust they have shown in me at this cornerstone moment in Baltimore County’s history,” Redmer said. “As we know, Baltimore County has an incredible number of unmet needs, chief among which is the rising crime throughout our county. I look forward to supporting and working with the Sheriff’s Office and all of our law enforcement agencies to make our communities safer for all Baltimore County residents.”
“We are proud to endorse Al Redmer, Jr. for Baltimore County Executive and look forward to partnering with him to improve working conditions for law enforcement and all county employees and agencies,” said Kish. “We are confident that under a Redmer administration, our voice will be heard and our priorities will be addressed, and that Baltimore County will be put back on the right track.”
Redmer has pledged to run the most competitive general election race for Baltimore County Executive in a generation. This is the candidate’s first major endorsement since his decisive 12-point victory in the June primary election. Redmer also enjoys the endorsement of Governor Larry Hogan, who has received sky-high approval ratings in both the Baltimore area and statewide. Governor Hogan won Baltimore County handily in his 2014 election, receiving more votes than the incumbent County Executive. The governor’s popularity and Redmer’s strong candidacy signals that Baltimore County is very much in play for Republicans in 2018.
