The PBA has endorsed Adam Hasner’s bid for US Congress. Someone should wake up Lois Frankel and give her the bad news.

Here’s a statement from the Hasner campaign:

Adam Hasner announced today the Police Benevolent Association has endorsed his campaign for the United States House in Florida’s District 22.

“I am proud to earn the endorsement of the Police Benevolent Association, the men and women who help keep our communities safe,” said Hasner. “I appreciate that the PBA understands my proven record of standing up to gangs and my work to provide law enforcement with the tools needed to make our neighborhoods safer here in South Florida.”

Representing over 4,000 deputies, police, and correctional officers, the PBA is well-known for being effective advocates for the candidates they endorse. Focused on innovative crime-fighting initiatives and back to basics policing, they understand what it takes to reduce crime and serve the public.

“The Police Benevolent Association knows both Adam Hasner and Lois Frankel very well and we know how important this race is to the people of our community and the future of America,” John Kazanjian, President of the PBA, said. “When it comes to having an open mind, listening to both sides, and taking a responsible, results-oriented approach to keeping our community safe, there is only one choice in the race for Congress in Florida’s 22nd district – Adam Hasner.

“Lois Frankel has a 25-year record of more spending and rambling priorities, and her time as mayor was marked with arrogance, marble bathrooms in city hall, and a police helicopter being commandeered by Frankel to attend a party. West Palm Beach couldn’t afford Lois Frankel then, and we certainly can’t afford to send Lois to Washington now.”

Adam’s campaign has also been endorsed by the Nonpartisan Voter’s Coalition, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Federation of Independent Business, Associated Builders and Contractors, and other national organizations. Adam is also supported by a coalition of current and former elected officials, both Democrat and Republican, throughout Palm Beach and Broward counties.
