OSPOA endorses Kroger for Oregon AG
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Oregon Attorney General candidate John Kroger on Thursday announced the endorsement of the Oregon State Police Officers’ Association (OSPOA), further cementing his support among law enforcement leaders and associations from across the state.

"I am confident that John Kroger knows the tools of law enforcement through his years of experience as a federal prosecutor,” said OSPOA Vice President Andy Moyer.  “That experience, combined with his pledge to work with law enforcement to make Oregon safer, is why I stand by his quest to become the next Attorney General of Oregon."

OSPOA represents state troopers from all across the state of Oregon.   Earlier in the campaign, Kroger rode along with OSPOA vice-president Andy Moyers as he patrolled Columbia County. 

Beaverton Police Chief Dave Bishop, 17 District Attorneys, and former U.S. Attorney Charlie Turner are also supporting Kroger, an award-winning Lewis & Clark Law School professor and a former federal prosecutor.  Kroger has received nearly every law enforcement endorsement in the Attorney General’s race.

“OSPOA members are dedicated to keeping Oregon safe,” said Kroger who has prioritized better law enforcement and drug treatment at every campaign stop.  “They are true law enforcement professionals and I am proud to have their support.”

As Attorney General, Kroger plans to combat the state’s meth crisis by pushing for tougher enforcement and a new plan for drug treatment, hold polluters accountable by imposing fines and jail time and fight for the civil rights of Oregonians.

The endorsement follows support of Kroger from 17 District Attorneys, Gov. John Kitzhaber, the Sierra Club , the Oregon Small Business for Responsible Leadership, Veterans in Action, Mayors Kitty Piercy of Eugene, Bruce Abernethy of Bend and Phil Houk of Pendleton and City Commissioners Erik Sten, Dan Saltzman and Randy Leonard.
