Michigan Republican Party Wrongfully Identifies POAM Endorsements

As Michigan’s largest police union, POAM has over 12,000 members. We are deliberate and selective about the candidates we endorse, which is why POAM is the most sought-after law enforcement endorsement by candidates.

It has come to our attention that the Michigan Republican Party sent mailers in 3 house districts wrongly identifying 3 candidates as earning the Police Officers Association of Michigan endorsement. This is incorrect.

Using our name improperly is offensive and an error that cannot be overlooked.

We would like to set the record straight as which candidates have earned the POAM endorsement and the trust of law enforcement in these 3 districts:
  • MI House District 62 – Jim Haadsma is the ONLY candidate endorsed by POAM
  • MI House District 98- Sarah Schulz is the ONLY candidate endorsed by POAM
  • MI House District 43 – No candidate earned POAM’s endorsement

We urge POAM members to support Jim Haadsma and Sarah Schulz.
