Sean Leuthold, who is on the ballot for judge of Crawford County Common Pleas Court, was recently endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio. He is the first Crawford County official to receive the honor. Last month he was endorsed by the local chapters of the Fraternal Order of Police.
In a letter dated April 30, FOP Ohio President Jay McDonald wrote: “On behalf of the Fraternal Order of Police of Ohio, Inc., I am pleased to announce that the State Lodge has joined the local lodges in Crawford County and has endorsed your candidacy for Crawford County Common Pleas Court. The FOP does not make any endorsement lightly. However, Crawford County deputy sheriffs speak very highly of you, and most importantly your commitment to the public safety of the citizens of Crawford County, is to be rewarded with our humble endorsement.”
Leuthold said of the endorsement: “The Ohio Fraternal Order of Police represents thousands of law enforcement officers throughout the state. These are the men and women who are on the front lines each day in this war on crime and drugs. It is a tremendous honor to be the first Crawford County Official to receive their endorsement. I look forward to continuing to work with local law enforcement in an effort to make Crawford County a safer place to live.”
