#LAFOP Endorses @CynthiaHMorrell for #NOLA City Council. @lafop @fopno #FOP #FOPNO



At its winter meeting on Saturday, January 18, 2014, the Louisiana Fraternal Order of Police Board of Directors voted to endorse Councilmember Cynthia Hedge-Morrell for Councilmember-At-Large Division 2 in the 2014 election for New Orleans City Council.

With two sons serving on the New Orleans Police Department, Councilmember Hedge-Morrell is keenly aware of the issues facing law enforcement in New Orleans.

Councilmember Hedge-Morrell has proven throughout her years of service that she is willing to take bold steps to improve both the safety of New Orleanians and those who visit New Orleans and the lives of New Orleans Police Officers. We expect that her dedication to New Orleans, the region, and the State of Louisiana will continue once re-elected.

The Fraternal Order of Police encourages everyone to vote for Cynthia-Hedge-
Morrell, Councilmember-At-Large, Division 2, Saturday, February 1, 2014.
