City Council District 22 Democratic candidate, John J. Ciafone, received the proud endorsement of the NYC Correction Officers’ Benevolent Association (COBA), New York City’s Boldest. They are the second largest Law Enforcement Union in NYC and in the Nation.
John J. Ciafone, said, “I am honored and privileged to receive the support of my brothers and sisters in law enforcement who deal with dangerous conditions in our jails and yet keep our city safe, while risking their lives on a daily basis.
“Together, with COBA, we share a mission to keep the Riker’s Island jail open, and to ensure that all jails remain safe and functional so that we are able to protect everyone in our city. We CANNOT afford to close our jails. We MUST support the hard work, dedication and sacrifice of our NYC Correction Officers.”
