The Yates County COPS law enforcement union has endorsed Todd Casella in this year’s campaign for district attorney.
The organization represents the road patrol and criminal investigations division of the county sheriff’s office.
“After careful consideration, we extend our endorsement to you in your candidacy for the position of district attorney in Yates County,” COPS President Frank Ryan and Vice President Patrick Manahan said in their letter of endorsement. “The position of district attorney is an important part of the legal system that requires committed, and devoted enforcement of the law as well as compassion for the people we serve. Open and honest communications with all levels of law enforcement are essential to best serving the people of Yates County.”
“I am honored and humbled that the brave men and women of the Yates County Sheriff’s Office voted to endorse me to be the next Yates County district attorney,” Casella said. “No one knows better than them how important it is for a DA to have my commitment to justice, my dedication to work with law enforcement, and my passion for this important work. It is clear they are ready for a change and I look forward to working closely with them to serve the great people of Yates County if elected.”
