Dear Attorney General Healey:
On behalf of the entire membership of the Massachusetts Major City Police Chief’s Association (MMCC) – comprised of the 39 largest police departments in the state – we would like to take this opportunity to respectfully apprise you that our organization has made the decision to endorse you in your candidacy for reelection as Attorney General for this great Commonwealth. Our membership had a vote this past Tuesday at our monthly MMCC Meeting at the BYN Mellon in Everett and we are pleased to inform you that the vote passed unanimously by all of our members that were present and voting.
All the men and women of our organization collectively agree that your office, behind your formidable leadership, has been doing an outstanding job over the past 4 years, specifically as it pertains to enhancing public safety in our cities and towns and taking an exceptional leadership role in addressing the opioid epidemic as well as working to reducing violence.
We believe that we have the ability to recognize the leadership qualities that are necessary to effectively address the critical issues that face the citizens of Commonwealth in the years that lay ahead. You absolutely possess those qualities and understand the need to build positive relationships with the entire law enforcement community and recognize how that translates into effective public safety policy.
We are looking forward to continue our valued partnership and working together with you and your office over the next four years to do everything that we possibly can to enhance public safety for all of our residents in this great Commonwealth behind your leadership, guidance and support.
Brain A. Kyes
