Houston, TX – Today, Wesley Hunt was honored to receive the endorsement of the Texas Fraternal Order of Police in his campaign to represent Texas’ 7th District in Congress. Wesley’s commitment to supporting the men and women of our law enforcement is steadfast, and as the next representative for the 7th District, Wesley will work to strengthen the relationship between our communities and our law enforcement officers and ensure the officers of our police departments have the resources they need to effectively do their jobs.
“I’m honored today to represent the Texas Fraternal Order of Police, representing 15,000 police officers across the state, as we announce our endorsement for Wesley Hunt in his run for Texas’ 7th Congressional District. Wesley Hunt walks the walk. Whether that’s showing up during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and providing much-needed PPE supplies for our officers, or meeting with our officers and actually getting to know who they are as people,” said National Fraternal Order of Police Vice President Joe Gamaldi. “It’s picking up the phone when one of our officers is injured and checking on that officer and their family. This is but a small taste of who Wesley is and what he stands for. And we know, if given the opportunity, he will bring that same caring spirit to everyone in this district and everyone across the country.”
“I would like to extend my deepest thanks to the members of the Texas Fraternal Order of Police for having me here today and for endorsing my campaign for Congress; I am humbled to have earned your trust and support. In Congress, I hope to magnify the ethos of selfless service you bring to our neighborhoods and communities. Unfortunately, my opponent has become another enabler of the chaos and division running rampant in our country. And she has let us down, not just through her actions, but also through her inaction,” Hunt continued. “I pledge to you today that I will always fight for Houston and our values. Just as you hold the line and keep chaos at bay in our city, I will hold the line against the senseless partisanship in Congress.”
Hunt is a Houston native and battle-tested leader willing to stand up for the 7th Congressional District. While his opponent Lizzie Fletcher made Pelosi Speaker of the House and refuses to condemn the most liberal of Democratic priorities, Wesley is a problem solver who will work with both sides to bring results home to the 7th District.
