OLEAN, NY (WNY News Now) – The GOP candidate vying for your vote in this fall’s Congressional Election in Western New York, made a stop in Cattaraugus County this week where he questioned the treatment of law enforcement in our region.
NY-23 Congressional GOP candidate Nick Langworthy made a stop in Olean Wednesday, to announce an official law enforcement endorsement.
“The support of our brave men and women in law enforcement. I wanna thank the city of Olean police department unions for road patrol and commanders for your support and your confidence in me to go to Washington to represent our community,” says Langworthy.
The candidate went on to question why law enforcement are the ones being treated unfairly.
“They are the heroes among us. And sadly, they are now the ones under siege. They are the ones being targeted by dangerous and frankly idiotic far-left ideology. What we’ve seen from one party Democratic rule whether it be in Washington or New York State is a dismantling of our criminal justice system that puts the rights of criminals ahead of the rights of law-abiding taxpayers,” suggests Langworthy.
Langworthy condemned bail reform and the new gun laws in NYS, and wondered how many tragedies it will take for these actions to be reversed. He ensures all law enforcement that if he is elected, they will be fully funded and new officers of the highest standards will be trained to keep the community safe.
“They need equipment, they need training, they need resources. They need the right laws in place, and they need the right posture from our country’s leaders. Our men and women in blue will never have to guess where I stand as your member of Congress,” assures Langworthy.
He believes this election, voters will change their mindset from “woke” to “waking up.”
