WOODBRIDGE- New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association President Patrick Colligan today released the following statement endorsing County Sheriff Joseph Cryan’s campaign to represent the 20th Legislative District in the State Senate. Cryan announced his candidacy after Senator Raymond Lesniak stated that he will be running for Governor and following declarations of support from Chairman Jerry Green, Elizabeth Mayor J. Christian Bollwage and 20th District Assembly members Annette Quijano and Jamel Holley.

“Whether as Undersheriff, an Assemblyman or as Sheriff, Joe Cryan has always been a friend to law enforcement,” said PBA President Pat Colligan.  “Sheriff Cryan understands the difficulties and dangers our members are confronted with each day and he has always been willing to work with us towards the common goals of keeping our streets safe and our neighborhoods protected.  I consider Joe a friend and intend to do everything possible to help get him elected and back down in Trenton in the State Senate fighting for the working men and women of the PBA.”

A Republican congressman took matters into his own hands Friday and personally removed a painting depicting police officers as pigs that a colleague had allowed to be displayed at the U.S. Capitol complex.

“I was angry,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., told FoxNews.com. “I’ve seen the press [reporting] on this for about a week or so. … I’m in the Marine Corps. If you want it done, just call us.”

Hunter said he walked over to the artwork Friday morning with a few colleagues and unscrewed it. He then delivered it to the office of Rep. Lacy Clay, D-Mo., the congressman whose office had allowed the piece to be displayed. The painting, hanging since June, was done by a high school student who had won Clay’s annual Congressional Art competition.
