Press Release, Minnesota Fraternal Order of Police Endorses Pete Stauber for His Commitment to Keep our Communities Safe

HERMANTOWN – The Minnesota Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Pete Stauber today for his 23 years of service as a law enforcement officer and his lifetime commitment to keeping our communities safe.

“When I took an oath 23 years ago, I vowed to serve and protect the citizens in my community and it is an honor to receive the endorsement of the Fraternal Order of Police,” said Stauber, who served 22 years on the Duluth Police Department. “In Congress, I will ensure the men and women who have dedicated their lives to this noble service have the tools they need to keep our children, our families, our seniors, and all community residents safe.”

“The members of the MNFOP are honored to stand with Pete Stauber not because he spent 22 years as a cop in Duluth, but because he has a strong track record of public service spanning those two decades as a cop, city-councilman, county commissioner, and proven leader,” said Matthew Hagen, President of the Minnesota Fraternal Order of Police.  “We are confident Pete will not only recognize, but respect the dedication and hard work of law enforcement officers who make our communities safe for all citizens throughout Minnesota.  Also, his values align with those of our members and we are confident his work in Congress will dovetail with the legislative priorities of the MNFOP.”

Pete has spent a lifetime in public service defending our communities and keeping Minnesotans safe.  In fact, after theDuluth News Tribune made a data request to the Duluth Police Dept., the newspaper reported that Pete’s 22 years of service was “a career without a single formal complaint” with a personnel file that “included a handful of commendations and promotions.”
