Randy Fairbanks, the GOP nominee for the District 1 seat on the Hamilton County Commission, has received the endorsement of the two police unions in Hamilton County – the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Rock City Lodge 22 and the International Brotherhood of Police Officers (IBPO) Local #673. Both unions represent police officers and deputies from every police department throughout Hamilton County.
"The members of Rock City Lodge #22 choose to endorse Randy Fairbanks because they believe he is the most qualified candidate to be the next County Commissioner for District 1 and will best represent the values and vision of fellow police officers while serving on the Commission,” said Sean O'Brien, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Rock City Lodge.
Rob Simmons, president of IBPO’s Local #673, said, “The International Brotherhood of Police Officers Local #673 proudly endorses Randy Fairbanks for the District 1 seat on the Hamilton County Commission. Our members choose to support Randy Fairbanks in this race because they trust his leadership abilities on the issues that matter most to police officers and their families. We also believe Randy is the best person to represent our needs on the County Commission and will actively fight to ensure the public safety needs of this community are funded so police officers can better serve local residents and businesses.”
Mr. Fairbanks said, “I am truly humbled and honored to receive these two endorsements from the men and women that protect and serve our communities on a daily basis,” said Randy Fairbanks. “As County Commissioner, I will advocate for the policies that support the mission of these brave men and women as well as fight to ensure they have the necessary tools and resources to keep our families, streets and schools safe and secure.”
