From the Harford County Municipal Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 128:
The Harford County Municipal Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 128 voted not to endorse either Sheriff Jesse Bane or challenger Jeff Gahler for the November 2 election. Both candidates spoke openly to members at our monthly meeting.
“Both candidates have pros and cons”, said Jason Neidig, President of the lodge.
“It was the feeling of the membership in attendance not to go against the endorsement of the Deputies Association. If there had been an endorsement by our lodge, there would have been a chance it could have put the F.O.P supporting one candidate and the Deputies Association supporting another. While we typically endorse, it should be them (the Deputies Association) who endorse their next boss”, said Neidig.
