Quinton Lucas Receives Key Police Endorsement
Kansas City, MO – The 1,600-member Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 99 has announced their endorsement of Quinton Lucas for Mayor of Kansas City, cementing Lucas’s status as the only candidate endorsed by the entire public safety community, as he runs to make Kansas City safer.
“Quinton has always stood up for the women and men who work hard each day to keep our community safe and will do so as our Mayor. Quinton is from this community and for this community. He listens to our officers, is the only candidate to build relationships with officers through KCPD ride-alongs, and recognizes that nothing is more important than the safety of our community. Too many families in Kansas City are impacted by violence; Quinton will change that. We are proud to endorse him and even prouder to work with him as Mayor and as a member of the Board of Police Commissioners,” said Brad Lemon, President of Fraternal Order of Police.
In response to the endorsement, Lucas said “Nothing is more important to me than the safety of our citizens. We will never be the Kansas City we should be if our friends and neighbors live in fear. No matter the neighborhood, parents should know their children are going to come home safe. I am proud to support and stand with law enforcement as we work to improve the quality of life for every Kansas Citian by building safer neighborhoods. We don’t need more task forces that put reports on a shelf. We don’t need blue ribbon commissions to talk circles around an issue. We need as Mayor who will commit to taking our city off the top ten most dangerous cities list. I will do just that and I know that requires working with and listening to our police. I’m honored to have strong local support from our public safety community. I look forward to curbing the crime rate in our City, and making sure our community and our police officers are safe.”
