HUNTSVILLE – The Huntsville Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) announced this week their endorsement of Frank Barger in the race for Probate Judge of Madison County. The Huntsville FOP chose Barger over his two opponents in the upcoming Republican primary election on June 5th. Barger has also received endorsements from local and state groups and leaders, including Alabama Secretary of State John H. Merrill, the Alabama Farmers Federation, and the Huntsville Madison County Builders Association.
“I thank our Fraternal Order of Police for their support of my campaign and – most importantly – for their work every day to ensure local law enforcement has the tools they need to keep our neighborhoods in Madison County safe and growing,” said Barger. “As probate judge, I look forward to working with those who sacrifice so much to make our community as best as it can be.”
“The Fraternal Order of Police works with local officials from a variety of municipal, county and state agencies to include the probate court. And we depend those agencies and the probate court to be efficient and well-managed so that we can focus on the most critical law enforcement challenges before us,” said FOP President, Lieutenant Donny Shaw. “Frank has a unique and specific knowledge of the job for which he’s applying, we are confident that he is the best man for the job, and we look forward to working with him.”
As a key member of the Probate Judge’s staff and Elections Administrator, Barger has prioritized technology, transparency, fiscal accountability and improved service to the public. Additional endorsements from local leaders and Madison County residents can be found at www.frankbarger.com.
