Emeryville Police Enter Political Fray
Two Council Picks in Opposition to the Will of the People of Emeryville
Next time you see one of these drive by remember
Ally Medina and Christian Patz are no good
on our City Council.
The Emeryville Police Department wants you to know the two winning City Council members selected by the people for our town were not worth voting for. Those of you who voted for Ms Medina and Mr Patz should think about that next time you see the boys in blue drive by. Those who voted for whom the police wanted us to vote for should think about it as well.
|He supports the police say EPD.|
Do the other two?
Do you, Emeryville voter?
And it's not just Emeryville. Indeed, nation-wide police endorsing of political candidates seems to be a fashionable thing. EPD's brothers and sisters at the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Donald Trump for president, something that organization thinks will help foster good relations between the public and police.
|Warning: When you see one of |
these, don't let it slip you voted for
Ally Medina and Christian Patz.
An Emeryville police officer told the Tattler they will likely engage in this kind of political calculation from now on. He said to expect political endorsements for City Council by the police next time too (strangely he would not say whether the police will endorse School Board members leaving us to wonder why not?). This is a degradation of our Emeryville Police Department. If they plan on inserting themselves as a manipulating power in our electoral business like this moving forward, they will have to suffer the inevitable ill effects that come from this sort of rank political gamesmanship. We don't want that for this group of heretofore professional and highly publicly regarded public servants. To the Emeryville Police Department: get out of our elections and back into our neighborhoods.
|Fine on the School Board...just keep |
him off the City Council says EPD.
|'Don't vote for her' says EPD.|
Oops! Too late.
