FOP ENDORSES STACY HEAD FOR CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE SEAT
At its January 2014 General Membership Meeting, the Fraternal Order of Police, Crescent City Lodge, following the procedures set out in its Constitution and By-laws, voted to endorse candidate Stacy Head for one of the New Orleans City Council’s two At-Large seats.
Stacy Head has proven to be a great friend to law enforcement during her tenure as Councilperson from District B, and over the past four years as Councilperson At-Large. Her office door is always opened to the F.O.P. and she has been a great help to our members on a host of issues.
In this morning’s addition of The New Orleans Advocate it was reported that Ms. Head’s lone opponent publicly stated his support for the New Orleans domicile ordinance, while Stacy Head called the debate a silly distraction and favored removing the ordinance.
