CLARKSBURG – The West Virginia State Fraternal Order of Police voted unanimously to endorse Justice Robin Davis for re-election to the West Virginia Supreme Court.
The endorsement was issued during the annual state convention in Clarksburg.
"Justice Robin Davis is a long-time supporter of police statewide and has always listened to our concerns," Fraternal Order of Police President H. Steven Walker said. "She hasn't always ruled in our favor, but her decisions have always been fair. The court needs to retain a justice of her caliber."
"I am as honored and humbled to receive the FOP's endorsement for 2012 as I was in 1996," Davis said, "when the FOP was the very first organization to endorse my election to the court.
"I have the utmost respect for the work our law enforcement agencies do every day, and I appreciate the confidence they have in me."
This is the second statewide law enforcement endorsement Davis has earned. The West Virginia State Troopers Association issued their endorsement last month.
Davis, who has served on the Supreme Court since 1996, has been actively engaged in efforts that aid law enforcement, including the current truancy and anti-dropout initiative.
