"Thank you to Chief Reilly, my Police Chief, for keeping all of us safe. Chief Dan Hyman has big shoes to fill, but having worked alongside Chief Reilly, I know he will do great and has my full confidence. It is incumbent on all of us to support our police and push back against radical progressives' legislation to defund them."

"Thank you, Ramapo Police Chief Marty Reilly, for your four decades of service to Hudson Valley families," Congressman Lawler stated post-event. "It was a privilege to be with you at yesterday’s walk-out and present a proclamation celebrating your distinguished career!"
