Dear Representative Todd 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 82nd Legislative Session of Texas, you worked hard to make sure Texas peace officers were represented during one of the most contentious and volatile sessions we have ever seen. Officer rights were assailed at every turn 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, lead and stand strong for Texas.
We believe your campaign is about more than mere strategy and political maneuvering. We believe your strong positions on issues that impact Texas’ public safety and the security of our homeland deserves 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 re-election campaign.
Texas officers deserve representation, advocacy and results they can count on. It is with pride that we endorese your re-election campaign for state representative.
You should know that this is intended to be more than just a lip service endorsement. Please feel free to contact me if I or CLEAT can be of any assistance to you and your campaign.
With Highest Regards,
Director of Public Affairs
