NC Police Benevolent Association endorses Folwell

The N.C. Police Benevolent Association endorsed Republican Dale Folwell in the race for state Treasurer.

“Dale has a proven track record of tackling tough problems and working to find common sense solutions to make government more cost effective and efficient,” state division President Randy Byrd said in a statement. “His depth of experience will be a tremendous asset to the citizens of North Carolina and the members of the retirement system.”

Folwell is a CPA, former state legislator, former assistant state Commerce secretary, and former Registered Investment Adviser. Folwell and Democrat Dan Blue III are competing for the seat.

Folwell said in a statement that he proudly accepted the association’s endorsement and will “protect and preserve the pension and healthcare systems that they and their families depend upon.”
