BURLINGTON – Today at a public event in Battery Park, Christina Nolan, GOP candidate for the United States Senate, received the endorsement of both the Burlington Police Officers’ Association and the South Burlington Police Officers’ Association.

“As Vice-President of the BPOA, and on behalf of our members, I’m proud to announce our endorsement of Christina Nolan for U.S. Senate. From her time as U.S. Attorney, she has been a strong advocate for law enforcement and public safety. In the past, we have not typically endorsed candidates for State-wide elections, but given the recent rise in violent crime, and the negative impacts of the defund the police movement, we feel that is more important than ever to support common-sense voices who understand that law enforcement plays an integral part of any safe and vibrant community,” said Oren Byrne, Vice President Burlington Police Officers’ Association.

“The South Burlington Police Officers’ Association would like to announce its endorsement of Christina Nolan for U.S. Senate. As a candidate, and as a public servant, Christina has demonstrated strong support for law enforcement while emphasizing the importance of public safety. We are grateful to have someone who can recognize the challenging work that we do as police officers, and who is willing to work alongside us in our effort to build a stronger relationship with the communities we serve,” stated Dan Boyer, President of the South Burlington Police Officer’s Association.

“I’m beyond honored to receive these endorsements, and pledge to always be a champion for law enforcement as Vermont’s next senator. Crime is rising across our state and especially in Burlington, and yet career politicians continue to slash funding and demonize the men and women who every day put their lives on the line to keep the rest of us safe. My opponent, Congressman Peter Welch, has voted multiple times to defund law enforcement during his time in Washington. These are votes he will have to answer for and I intend to hold him accountable,” added Nolan.

In March 2021, Welch voted against a motion to recommit to condemn calls to “defund”, “disband”, “dismantle”, or “abolish” the police. (H.R. 1280, Roll Call Vote #59: Failed 208-219, 3/3/21, Welch Voted Nay; Congressional Record, 3/3/21, p. H1069)

Welch voted for the George Floyd Justice In Policing Act, which sought to end qualified immunity – a move the Fraternal Order of Police argued was anti-police and would make it so no one would want to be an officer. (H.R. 1280, Roll Call Vote #60: Passed 220-212, 3/3/21, Welch Voted Yea; CQ Summary, Accessed 11/12/21; Politico, 10/14/20)

  1. She may not be everything a sentimental Vermont conservative dreams about but I will be voting for (and continue contributing to) the female, gay, born-in-Vermont Republican and NOT the straight, male, white lawyer from Massachusetts. And hey, Vermont moderates and liberals, who for years have lamented that Vermont has never sent a woman to Congress, here is your chance to remedy that.

  2. She is not a CONSERVATIVE! She is a RINO. I’m not voting for someone just because she has a chance of winning because she is a little more palatable to moderates and some leftists. She would be another go along to get along for Mich McConnell. I’m not voting for someone who says she would confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson on the Supreme Court and I suspect she would be the 11th senator voting for the new gun control bill with unconstitutional “Red Flag” laws McConnell & Cornyn are ramming down our throats. https://www.law.cornell.edu/supremecourt/text/20-157

    There are two true conservatives running Myers Mermel https://www.myersmermel.com/priorities/
    and Gerald Malloy https://www.geraldmalloyforussenatevermont.com/

  3. Vermont better wake up, here is our chance to have a conservative voice in DC,
    not a liberal agenda follower like Welch who feels he’s entitled to the Senate seat,
    why ……. he’s not a leader !!

    Christina will and does support the Constitution and the rule of law, something she
    has proven !!

    Wake up people let’s get Vermont back to being Vermont, lets’s put Petey out to
    pasture where he belongs ………………….

    • Seriously???? She supports the judge who is soft on child pornographers and pedophiles and refused to say who she voted for as president because it was dementia joe. There are 2 true conservatives running for senator and one, Myers Mermel has the economic savvy to help fix the democrat created mess.
      I can say if Nolan opposes Welch I won’t be voting for her because I’m sick of the progressive weak kneed RINOs who claim to be republicans. At least Petey is honest enough to admit he’s a democrats, even though that’s the only thing he’s honest about.
