Brotherhood of Corrections Officers endorses Hodgson

By News Staff

A major endorsement for Rhode Island Attorney General Candidate Dawson Hodgson was announced Monday.

The republican has the support of the Rhode Island Brotherhood of Corrections Officers.

The president of the brotherhood cites Hodgson’s experience as a prosecutor and as a ranking member of the Rhode Island State Senate’s Judiciary Committee, as reasons to endorse Hodgson.

Hodgson says he is grateful for the endorsement and it speaks volumes about his plan to create safe streets.

“The justice system is grinding to a halt, we see backlogs on bail for almost a year,” says Hodgson.

Another major priority for Hodgson is working on the sentencing procedures, especially for violent offenders.
