Town of Poughkeepsie PBA commits to ‘problem-solver’ as next mayor of city
POUGHKEEPSIE – County Legislature Chairman (District 8) and City of Poughkeepsie mayoral candidate Rob Rolison today announced that the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Benevolent Association (PBA) has officially endorsed his candidacy. Rolison served the law enforcement community as a Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department Patrolman and Detective for a total of 26 years. This is the second law enforcement endorsement for Rolison in less than a week: On August 14 the Dutchess County Deputy Sheriffs PBA announced its support.
“Rob Rolison is an experienced problem-solver and a true friend of law enforcement. He is a longtime member of our local law enforcement community, having served alongside our men and women for nearly three decades. The Town of Poughkeepsie PBA fully endorses Rob for mayor of the City of Poughkeepsie,” said Jason Guy, President of the Town of Poughkeepsie PBA.
On July 29 Rolison announced a joint county-city plan to provide Poughkeepsie with additional resources to combat a recent string of shootings in the Queen City. The plan includes doubling the number of patrols involving Sheriff’s Office and City of Poughkeepsie Police Department personnel in crime hot spots. A description of steps already enacted as well as future crime-prevention policies can be found here.
“The Town of Poughkeepsie PBA not only advocates on behalf of its members but the law enforcement community as a whole. It ensures that the brave men and women who risk their lives for the safety of our residents have the resources they need to get the job done. I was proud to serve as the organization’s former president, and I am deeply grateful for their full support of our campaign to make Poughkeepsie a safer, cleaner, and stronger city,” said Rolison.
