Re-elect Dan Lipinski Congressman


February 20, 2018

The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), Chicago Lodge #7 has endorsed Congressman Dan Lipinski (D-03) for reelection in the Democratic Primary. The FOP serves as the collective bargaining agent for more than 8,200 Chicago Police Officers, many of whom are Third District constituents.

“Police officers put their lives on the line to keep our communities safe,” Lipinski said. “I am honored by their endorsement as it reflects my strong support for police officers and my fight for labor rights, fair and safe workplaces, and middle-class families.”

Lipinski has fought to protect retirement and pension benefits, to eliminate the excise tax that can increase health care costs, and to maintain collective bargaining rights. He has also worked to maintain and expand federal funding for the COPS and Byrne JAG programs.

“After the tragic killing last week of Commander Paul Bauer, communities across the Third District have once again stood up and shown their support for our police officers,” said Lipinski. “This past Sunday, I was happy to join with the Garfield Ridge Community Watch to raise money for the family of Commander Bauer and to attend the annual St. John Fisher pancake breakfast to raise funds to purchase bullet-proof vests for Chicago police. I’m proud to stand with my constituents in support of law enforcement.”

The endorsement by the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #7 marks the 16th labor union organization, including the Illinois AFL-CIO, to announce their support for Congressman Lipinski’s reelection.
