FOP Presidential Endorsement Process

The National FOP will soon decide whom, if anyone, the FOP will endorse for President of the United States.  Attached is the response to the FOP Questionnaire from Candidate Donald Trump.  Despite repeated attempts by the National FOP, the Clinton campaign has refused to respond to the FOP questionnaire.

 Each local lodge must decide whom their lodge prefers to endorse or if they wish to make no endorsement.  The President of each local lodge must send a signed letter to the State Lodge by September 10, 2016 stating the lodge’s preference.  Once all these letters are received the State Lodge will tally the votes and instruct me, as the National Trustee from KY, how to vote at the National Board Meeting in September.  Each Trustee must cast a vote for a candidate or for “no endorsement.”  A candidate who receives a two-thirds majority of the National Board of Trustees receives the endorsement of the National Fraternal Order of Police.

President Canterbury Message

Trump FOP Questionnaire

Please review the attached information.  Each Lodge President (or State Trustee with authority from the President) must send their signed preference letter to the KY State Lodge by September 10, 2016.
