Dear Representative Hunter,
Because of your longstanding commitment to Texas law enforcement and your public stand on issues that will impact the rank and file officers of the state, the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas, or CLEAT, is endorsing your campaign for re-election to the office of state representative.
During the 83rd Legislative Session of Texas, Texas peace officers’ rights were attacked and those who sought to hurt law officers and their families were often emboldened. We are grateful to people like you who were not afraid to listen, and stand strong for Texas.
We believe your campaign is about more than strategy and political maneuvering. We believe your strong positions on issues that impact Texas’ public safety and security of our homeland deserve our support and endorsement.
As you know, CLEAT is the state’s largest police organization and we have the reputation of fighting hard for Texas law enforcement. We believe you have the similar courage to come to Austin and make a difference for the public we protect.
This next session will see a myriad of issues come before the legislature. We want you to be there fighting for us so that’s why we’ve chosen to stand and fight with you now, during your campaign.
Texas officers deserve representation, advocacy and results they can count on. It is with pride that we endorse your campaign.
Please feel free to contact me if I, or CLEAT, can be of any assistance to your and your campaign.
With Highest Regards,Charley Wilkison
