The tryouts were held a week ago: Eureka's candidates for mayor and city council were invited to present their bona fides to the EPOA, followed by some Q and A. Today, the group's president, Patrick Bishop, announced the endorsements:
The Eureka Police Officer's Association values the commitment these candidates have given to keep public safety their top priority despite the difficult economic times the City is facing. Each of these candidates has publically endorsed Measure O which The Eureka Police Officer's Association is actively supporting. The nominees that the Eureka Police Officer's Association has chosen to endorse are Frank Jager for City Mayor, Larry Glass City Council for Ward 1 and Ron Kuhnel City Council for Ward 3.
