The International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local #673 is endorsing Andrae McGary for re-election to the Chattanooga City Council District 8.
The group said, "In the past Councilman McGary has supported many issues of which have been of paramount importance to the members of the IBPO and the officers of the Chattanooga Police Department. Councilman McGary fought hard to address the Pay inequity issues within the department and has pressed to make sure the Career Development Program was fully funded.
Furthermore he has led the debate on allowing police to take their vehicles home rather than parking them uselessly in a city lot.
"He believes that Crime can be impacted in a positive way by marked police vehicles in our neighborhoods. Councilman McGary knows that a fully staffed and adequately supported Police Department is good for the future of Chattanooga."
