New Bedford Ward 3 City Council candidate Hugh Dunn has received another endorsement from a local union, as his campaign announced today the endorsement of the New Bedford Police Union.

Dunn, a former aide to Congressman Bill Keating, worked with the New Bedford Police Department on various public safety issues. The New Bedford Police Union joins the New Bedford Fire Fighters, the Greater Southeastern Massachusetts Labor Council, the Building Trades Council, and former Councilors Henry Bousquet and George Smith in endorsing Dunn’s candidacy.

“Hugh’s focus on public safety and the opioid epidemic will be very beneficial to the ward and city,” said Hank Turgeon, President of the New Bedford Police Union. “He has supported our organization’s initiatives and has seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today. He understands and supports our priorities, and we believe that he will work with us to keep New Bedford safe.”

Dunn, an attorney, comes from a family with a deep background in law enforcement.

“This endorsement is a great honor for me,” said Dunn. “My grandfather was, and my uncle currently is a police officer. My family ties to law enforcement have helped me understand the stresses of the job, the sacrifices our officers make, and the bravery required to wear a badge. I have deep respect for the selfless, committed, and highly trained police officers in New Bedford. I promise to work with these fine men and women to improve safety in Ward 3.”
