Election Results of 2022 POAM Candidates

POAM asks candidates and incumbents to fill out a questionnaire and be available for an interview if necessary. Then, we look at past records of supporting law enforcement issues and employees’ rights. Both parties are considered equally, and if they are good for our members, they can earn our endorsement. Not all candidates in every district are endorsed. Membership feedback is very important; several candidates were brought to our attention by our membership. And several of those won. Please keep us informed of candidates you believe will benefit us. It’s appreciated and helpful for election season.
