State Troopers Back Knafelc & Kress – County Officers Standing By Lozier & Guy

Beaver County voters looking for guidance on who to support in the elections this fall may be getting little help from the law enforcement community. Unions representing municipal officers and state police have split, with each endorsing a different set of candidates.

District Attorney David Lozier and Sheriff Tony Guy, both incumbent Republicans, last night garnered the endorsement of Beaver Valley Lodge #4 of the Fraternal Order of Police. The union represents approximately 300 local municipal officers and county sheriff’s deputies.

Democratic challengers Ted Knafelc, who is running for district attorney, and Wayne Kress, running for sheriff, have both been endorsed by the state police’s Brady Paul Memorial FOP Lodge #54. Kress has also been endorsed by state police Lodge #47 and the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association, which represents some 4,300 active and retired State Police across the state.

County elections will be taking place on Nov. 5.

Pretty easy decision….. Hire someone that will work with the State Police, not against them!

That message speaks volumes!! Of course the county wants to keep the same cronies in place and not have their inside activities known to a new face. It’s time to vote out every person who is currently in a county seat. Beaver County has it’s head up its own ass and will never grow in population or businesses until those in power look outside the corrupt Beaver County box for new ideas and people for county positions.

Well, it’s nice that the PSP represents 4300 active and retired State Police across the state, but they all can’t vote in Beaver County. I am surprised that the local Lodge #4 gave that endorsement….I don’t understand that one. Maybe because the are Republican candidates.

This is nothing more than Guy’s deputies endorsing him. The meeting was stacked with 80% deputies with about 8 in uniform (on duty)? Typical back door move in Beaver County buy the Sheriff.

Lozier’s time is up. His fuzzy optimism in closing Rachael DelTondo’s murder will evaporate should he be re-elected. How does one not question the judgment of someone who, with so many investigators from which to choose, he recruited those from the most corrupt police force in Beaver County when he first took office.

To be absolutely honest, we don’t NEED a Sheriff’s office. It could all be handled less expensively by a private security firm.

Seems that it has become an employment agency. Enough is enough.

Guy turned out to be a fake Conservative, unwilling to cut expenses.

Unfortunately by county statute you have to have a Sheriffs Office. It’s time these locals start combining departments and stop having so many one man shows.

Tony Guy has done an incredible job as sheriff of beaver county don’t let the democrat lies control you. Just look at all your towns that are run by democrats for years and figure it out and if you can’t then you are a controlled puppet by these democrat crooks !
