Schulz Campaign Announces Law Enforcement For Kelly Coalition

May 31, 2022

Today the Kelly Schulz for Governor campaign announced the launch of the Law Enforcement for Kelly Coalition.

Violent crime is a top concern across the state, and Marylanders deserve to have a governor who will tackle this crisis seriously – Kelly Schulz will be that governor. In far too many communities across our state, violent criminals have been emboldened by weak prosecutors and feckless politicians who have devalued members of law enforcement and neglected to take legislative action to hold violent criminals accountable.

Working to save innocent lives should not be a partisan issue. Keeping our communities safe so that all Marylanders can have the opportunity to prosper and achieve their own dreams is a top priority for Kelly Schulz.

No other candidate in the race has received such strong and explicit backing from law enforcement leaders like Kelly Schulz has. With the backing of seven current sheriffs, law enforcement across the state know that Kelly Schulz is the only candidate who will take action to address violent crime and who will undoubtedly stand up for and support them.

As governor, Schulz has pledged to provide more funding for law enforcement to ensure that departments can hire officers, and that officers receive the proper training and equipment needed to perform their jobs safely and effectively. She will also work to expand the Hometown Heroes Act to eliminate state taxes on the retirement income of our members of law enforcement. To tackle violent crime, she will be focused on fighting for legislation to keep repeat violent offenders behind bars and penalties for those charged with illegal gun crimes.

“For me it is simple, as governor I will treat members of law enforcement like heroes and criminals like criminals,” said Kelly Schulz. “I always have and always will stand firmly with the brave men and women in law enforcement who put their lives on the line to protect us. It is humbling to have earned the trust and support of so many of these heroes from across the state – they deserve a governor who has their back, and that’s what they’ll have when I’m elected.”
