From the Harford County Municipal Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 128:
Aberdeen, MD – On Wednesday, September 16, 2009 members of our lodge voted to endorse Mayoral candidate Michael G. Hiob and Council candidate Sandra Landbeck in the November 3, 2009 Aberdeen City municipal election.
In a letter to Mayoral candidate Michael Hiob, Vice President Jason Neidig acknowledged the following reasons for the endorsement: “In your six years experience as a Council member, you have been through the good and the bad. You are dedicated to the citizens and employees, your willingness to listen and compromise, your fairness but not selfishness, your taking responsibility for actions even when wrong, and your courage to stand up for what’s right and not what’s popular has earned the respect of this lodge and its members.”
In a letter to Council candidate Sandy Landbeck, Neidig wrote: “Our membership believes that you will bring fresh (new) logical and responsible ideas to City government and support public safety efforts of our highly trained police officers.”
Our lodge is seeking three additional candidates to endorse for City Council. If any other candidates are endorsed by our lodge it will be after the filing deadline in October.
