INDIANAPOLIS (September 14, 2010) The Vop Osili for Indiana Secretary of State Campaign (www.votevop.com), is pleased to announce that the Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police, and its 14,000 members, have endorsed Vop Osili for Secretary of State.
“On behalf of the 14,000 members of the Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police, I am pleased to announce that the Indiana State Lodge has overwhelmingly voted to support Vop in the upcoming election, said Tim Downs, President of the Indiana State Fraternal Order of Police. “Seldom do we find a candidate of Vop’s caliber who has the leadership and integrity to carry out the duties as Secretary of State for the great State of Indiana. Like the State Fraternal Order of Police, Vop is clearly focused on helping Hoosier families across our state live in safe and prosperous and communities, and because of that we are thrilled to back his candidacy.”
“I am extremely pleased to have the full support of the Indiana State FOP,” said Osili. “We share many of the same values and goals – to help Hoosier families lead happy and productive lives. Law enforcement, and specifically the State FOP, plays a key role in ensuring that all Hoosiers live in quiet, happy and peaceful neighborhoods and communities. I want to thank them for the endorsement, but more importantly for the work they do on behalf of Hoosier families across our great state.”
Osili continued, “This campaign is about all Hoosier citizens, at all socio-economic levels – rural or urban – having the opportunities to succeed and prosper by ensuring that good jobs are available to them; that they have the ability to easily vote; and that they truly believe that the state of Indiana will help protect their investments and retirements.”
Vop Osili’s campaign is focused on job creation, strengthening small businesses across Indiana, ensuring voter’s rights are protected, and protecting families’ retirements and investments from fraud.
