I encourage you all to take the time to come out before or after your shifts bringing a non-member with you to cast your votes. If currently not a member of the FOP, please ask Bill Lawless for a membership application. FOP members, please spread the word throughout the agency so everyone has an opportunity to vote and become members of the FOP to enjoy the protection of legal defense and labor as well as the Fraternal Lodge located on over 30 acres with a lake and campsites. Labor was instrumental in bringing the proposed contract you will be voting on.
