Montpelier, Vt. – Today, the Vermont Troopers Association announced its support for Phil Scott for Governor.
“The Vermont Troopers Association is proud to endorse Phil Scott for Governor,” said the Association’s President, Sgt. Michael O’Neil. “Phil has a long track record of working with the law enforcement community and understands the daily challenges of the job. Lt. Governor Scott has said on many occasions that a critical role of government is ensuring public safety. We look forward to working with him in the future to improve fair and impartial law enforcement standards, combat the opiate epidemic, and address the array of issues Troopers face everyday in Vermont,” Sgt. O’Neil added.
“I am grateful to have the support of the Vermont Troopers Association in this race,” said Scott. “Troopers risk their lives every day to ensure the security of all Vermonters and make Vermont one of the safest states in the country to live and raise our families. The opiate epidemic and the destruction it causes in communities and among families has created new and more complex challenges, and as Governor, I will work with the Troopers and the entire law enforcement and public health community to address these challenges,” Scott added.
