Updated: Sep 19, 2022
Santa Monica’s influential police union has released its endorsements for the year backing a similar, but not identical group, as their firefighter counterparts.
The Santa Monica Police Officers Association endorsed Lana Negrete, Armen Melkonians, and Albin Gielicz this week.
“We must elect policy makers that make public safety a priority, and Lana, Armen, and Albin are committed to providing the Santa Monica Police Department with the resources we need to keep our community safe,” said Gerardo Leyva, SMPOA President.
