Sudbury, MA - Today Ingrid Centurion(R-Sudbury), candidate for State Representative in the 13th Middlesex District, announced her opposition to defunding the police.
“I am horrified by the death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer. That officer is and must be held accountable for his actions by our justice system. However, I don’t believe that all police are racists. I am opposed to defunding our police,” said Centurion, who is multi-cultural.
The incumbent has remained silent regarding law enforcement. Centurion believes that the incumbent owes it to the citizens of the district to clearly state his position on whether or not police should be funded.
“We need leadership from our State Representative not silence. Being multicultural, I believe that I can provide the calming leadership needed at this time. I will be able to bring people together,” said Centurion. “As a mother, I want my children to be able to grow up in a peaceful society where everyone is treated equally. But, that doesn’t mean getting rid of the police force that keeps us safe.”
“As the next State Representative, I will be a uniter not a divider,” said Centurion.
