Ulrich Gets Captain Endorsement


The NYPD Captain’s Endowment Association (CEA), a union representing 2,100 active and retired members of law enforcement, endorsed Councilmember Eric Ulrich’s campaign for NYC Public Advocate.  The CEA is the second major law enforcement organization to endorse in this race, and will be actively campaigning to ensure Ulrich’s victory in the February 26 Special Election.  Ulrich has already received the endorsement of the Detectives Endowment Association and their 18,000 members.

“Eric Ulrich is the only candidate in this race with a consistent record of standing up for law enforcement throughout his career in the City Council,”  CEA President Roy T. Richter said “At a time when other candidates are vying to antagonize the law enforcement family, Eric Ulrich has always been there for us, and it’s no question he will represent the interests of active and retired Captains alike in the future.”

Richter continued, “As a Councilmember, Eric’s support was not limited to policing and policy, but when many of our members, residents of his own district, saw their homes destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, Eric was there in the district and at City Hall making sure all of our members could rebuild their personal lives as well.”

Ulrich said “I’m proud and honored to once again receive the endorsement of our NYPD Captains. As Public Advocate, every member of law enforcement will have a voice in our office and know that I will always have their backs.”

Ulrich also noted that the “revival of New York City took place on the backs of our police, who not only restored safety and security to New York City, but enabled the City’s economy to grow exponentially, and who continue to make New York the safest big city in America.”
