“Larry Hogan is what our state needs, a truly bipartisan leader who seeks to make things better for all citizens and puts politics aside,” said Bill Raddatz, State Trustee for the St. Mary’s County Fraternal Order Of Police (FOP) Lodge #7. “That is why we, the members of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #7 are happy to join with the rest of the Maryland State Police Lodges to unanimously endorse Larry Hogan for re-election as governor.”

Throughout Governor Hogan’s first term in office, he has worked to enact legislation and policies that supports law enforcement officers. In 2017, the governor pushed for and enacted the Hometown Heroes Act to exempt the first $15,000 of their retirement income from state taxes. This year, new legislation was introduced by the governor and signed into law to expand the reach of this initiative. The governor has repeatedly introduced legislation to exempt 100 percent of law enforcement officers’ retirement income from state income taxes and has pledged to continue fighting to reach this goal.
In addition, Governor Hogan has invested over $300 million in police aid to local governments and municipalities, representing a 35 percent increase compared to the last four years of the previous administration. This year, the governor also enacted important new legislation to combat violent crime, including anti-gang legislation and tougher sentences for repeat violent offenders and people committing crimes with a gun. Today’s endorsement by nine Fraternal Order of Police Lodges highlights Governor Hogan’s commitment to support those who protect Marylanders and his strong leadership on public safety issues that have benefited citizens across the state.
“I am tremendously honored to receive the endorsement of nine Fraternal Order of Police lodges today,” said Governor Hogan. “Every single day these brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect and serve their neighborhoods and communities. These outstanding law enforcement officers know that for as long as I am governor, they’ll always have a friend in the governor’s office, a seat at the table, and an open door to a partner who will never stop working for them. I look forward to working with our law enforcement community in my second term as we build on our efforts to make Maryland a safer place to live.”
