I just got off the phone with Bill Nemec, president of the Police Officers Association.
Nemec said the union hasn’t decided yet whether it’s going to withdraw its endorsement of John Hartley, who was arrested last week on suspicion of indecent exposure. He said the union has contacted Hartley and is waiting for a response from the District 3 City Council candidate before it makes any decision.
“We’re waiting to hear from either the candidate or his representative regarding the incident, but we’ve heard the police report isn’t too flattering,” Nemec said.
“We are, after all, a police organization,” Nemec added, “and we’re going to say he’s innocent until proven guilty.”
This Just In has the latest details on Hartley’s case.
