The Chandler Lieutenants and Sergeants Association (CLASA) in association with the Arizona Conference of Police and Sheriffs (AZCOPS), local 7077 has unanimously endorsed the candidacy of Donna Wallace for Chandler City Council.
CLASA, a union of over 60 police supervisors of the Chandler Police Department, is an organizational partner of AZCOPS a 7,000-member strong coalition of police, deputy sheriffs and correctional officers throughout Arizona.
CLASA is the only charter-recognized bargaining organization for police supervisors in Chandler, and CLASA takes exception with Donna Wallace’s opponent, Kevin Hartke, who claims that local police endorse him. Hartke’s assertion that city of Chandler police endorse him is at best a “political slight of hand.” The Fraternal Order of Police, although a fine organization, is a benevolent order that is not the official voice of our local police officers and supervisors. CLASA believes that in the interest of veracity, Hartke should immediately correct this assertion and remove the “endorsed by police” banners that are affixed to his campaign signs.
F.B. Robinson, Trustee, CLASA
