Tracy Nabs Endorsement of Philadelphia FOP

terry-tracyOne Philadelphia City Council candidate is certainly racking up the endorsements.

Republican candidate for City Council At-Large Terry Tracy added another to his growing list of endorsements Wednesday: the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police.

“I am honored to be endorsed by the brave men and women of the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police,” Tracy said in a statement. “I intend to work as hard as possible to prove myself worthy of their support. I am grateful for each and every past and present member of the FOP Lodge #5 for the peace of mind and sense of safety they afford us.”

Tracy has also nabbed the support of the Philadelphia Fire Fighters & Paramedics Union IAFF-Local 22, The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia 3.0, an independent expenditure group that endorsed six young candidates — Tracy being the only Republican.

This is not the first time Tracy has run for public office. In 2013, he sought, unsuccessfully, the position of city controller. Now, Tracy is one of the seven Republican candidates vying to advance beyond next month’s primary. Only five candidates will do so.

    Congrats to the 3 Republicans endorsed by the Philadelphia FOP lodge 5: Councilman David Oh, Terry Tracy and Al Taubenberger.

  2. 13thDistrictDem says:

    Tracy was endorsed by the Inquirer? When did that happen?

  3. Howard Cohen says:

    Those who are endorsing Terry Tracy in his efforts to become an at-large City Council seat are making an informed, thoughtful choice. Terry has a pro-growth economic policy that is desperately needed in Philadelphia and, indeed, for Pennsylvania. He is smart, hard-working, thoughtful, and honest. That will be a real change for Philadelphia on City Council.

    Memo to self: remember that john mcnesby is now taking orders from Johnny Doc.

  5. Observer says:

    Another out-of-touch GOPper who doesn’t realize that people in this town and this country hate and fear the police overlords right now. Wanna get away with murder? Put on a badge. And help elect yahoos like this guy.

    I wonder if He’s related to Dick?
