The Fraternal Order of Police has endorsed Republican Michelle Coelho for State Senate in the 24th District. The seat represents Danbury, New Fairfield, and Ridgefield in the state Senate. Coelho called it a privilege to be endorsed by the Connecticut Fraternal Order of Police. She says the General Assembly should be striving to better equip and protect law enforcement, rather than making it harder and less safe to do their jobs. Coelho currently serves on the Board of Education and is looking to unseat Democratic incumbent Julie Kushner.
