Dave Moody asked that I reach out to various local lodges and gain some consensus on whether our State FOP should continue to partner with the LVPPA, partner with NAPSO or go off on our own with respect to how we endorse political candidates. Currently, all three organizations are part of a coalition for all bargaining units. The PPA wants to break off on their own. The issues at hand are pretty complicated between all of the unions and bargaining units right now, however partnering with other organizations has its benefits and drawbacks. I would like input from all of our members submitted in the comments section of this blog. Your opinion matters and the majority opinion will be submitted tomorrow Friday June 19th for the State Lodges consideration. To be clear the options are continue to partner with PPA which is metros Union, partner with NAPSO which has members from other state agencies, or stand alone as FOP. Thank you for your participation.
