Rep. Tenney Holds Third District Law Enforcement Roundtable


Congresswoman Claudia Tenney on Thursday hosted a roundtable discussion in the western portion of the 24th Congressional District to provide a forum for local law enforcement leaders and elected officials to discuss the challenges facing the community.

Tenney was joined at the event in Albion, Orleans County, by elected officials including, New York State Senate Minority Leader Robert Ortt, Orleans County Legislature Vice Chairman Bill Eick, Orleans County Legislator Donald Allport, Orleans County Legislator John Fitzak, Orleans County Legislator Skip Draper, Niagara County Legislator David Godfrey, and a representative from the office of Assemblyman Steve Hawley.

Law Enforcement Officers present included Genesee County Sheriff William Sheron Jr, Genesee County Undersheriff Bradley Mazur, Niagara County Deputy Attorney Brian Seaman, Niagara County Sheriff Michael Filicetti, Orleans County District Attorney Joseph Cardone, Orleans County Sheriff Christopher Bourke, Wyoming County Sheriff David Linder, Lewiston Police Chief Frank Previte, Lockport Police Chief Steven Abbott, Middleport Police Chief John Swick, Holley Police Chief Robert Barton, Village of Albion Police Chief David Mogle, Village of Medina Police Chief Todd Draper, and members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“Thank you to all the public servants who attended our Law Enforcement Roundtable today to discuss the ongoing challenges facing our law enforcement community,” said Congresswoman Tenney. “Every day, these courageous men and women risk their lives for our community, and they must have the tools they need to continue to keep themselves and our communities safe. I am eager to bring the feedback I received from our roundtable to Congress to continue advocating for the resources and legal protections our law enforcement officers deserve!”

“I want to thank Congresswoman Tenney for putting this roundtable together and I thank all of the attendees for taking the time to join us today to share exactly what our law enforcement officers are facing each and every day,” said Senate Minority Leader Robert Ortt. “We continue to witness our brave men and women in law enforcement come under attack by individuals who feel emboldened by Albany’s soft-on-crime policies. It is paramount that we protect those who are tasked with protecting us and today granted me the opportunity to learn first-hand of the ongoing challenges and reaffirm my support to our law enforcement personnel.”

On behalf of Orleans County and our local law enforcement agencies we would like to thank Congresswoman Tenney for continuing to address our public safety issues,” said Orleans County District Attorney Joseph Cardone. “There has been no stronger advocate in Congress supporting our efforts and introducing legislation to make policing more effective. It’s refreshing that our Representative in Washington has a sincere interest in what problems we are experiencing in our communities and that she has taken the time to understand our concerns. Claudia has repeatedly demonstrated a genuine concern for her constituents and our quality of life.

This is the third Law Enforcement Roundtable Tenney has hosted this year.
