GOUVERNEUR Mary E. Rains candidacy for St. Lawrence County district attorney on Tuesday received the endorsement of the Police Benevolent Association of the New York State Police.
The Republican candidate made the announcement on the steps of the courthouse in Gouverneur after the police union issued a news release about its endorsement.
Mary Rain is uniquely qualified for the position of their St. Lawrence County district attorney, as she has extensive legal and criminal justice experience, with over 10 years of experience as a prosecutor and having served as a police officer for 15 years, the union said in the release.
The PBA added that Ms. Rain is committed to helping crime victims and serving the citizens of St. Lawrence County.
In times of economic difficulty, there is generally a corresponding increase in crime, and the PBA is confident that Mary Rain will effectively and professionally prosecute criminals, the release said.
