CAMBRIDGE – The Fraternal Order of Police is behind Dorchester County Councilman Don Satterfield in the upcoming election for Dorchester County District 1.
Councilman Satterfield recently received endorsements from both the FOP Cambridge Lodge No. 27 Inc., the local lodge for Dorchester County, and the Maryland State FOP which has more than 70 other lodges and nearly 22,000 members statewide.

Members of Lodge No. 27 include officers from the Cambridge Police Department, the Dorchester Sheriff’s Office, the Hurlock Police Department, the Maryland State Police and many retired officers from those departments and other agencies.

Thomas R. Hurley, president of Lodge No. 27, said he and the members of the lodge are proud to endorse Mr. Satterfield.

“The lodge and its members are looking for public officials who are willing to support law enforcement and public safety and provide them the support needed to enforce the law and protect the public and their property,” Mr. Hurley said. “That includes the tools and equipment as well as pay and benefits to the Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies so they can perform their duties to a standard the public demands and deserves. Mr. Satterfield has a proven track record of support to law enforcement, public safety personnel, their departments and the citizens of Dorchester County.”

Councilman Satterfield retired with 36 years of military service, first in the Army, then as a member of the Maryland National Guard. He retired as a MP command sergeant major.

Councilman Satterfield has a long career in uniform as a corrections officer. He joined the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office in 1981 as a deputy jailer. He retired in 2011 as warden of the Dorchester County Department of Corrections.

“I am honored to receive the endorsements of Cambridge Lodge No. 27 and the Maryland State FOP,” Mr. Satterfield said. “I thank the members for honoring my years of service in uniform. However, this endorsement is a reflection of the hard work of the Dorchester County Council, and the good folks who work in Dorchester County government.”

Mr. Hurley said, “The FOP looks forward to Mr. Satterfield serving District 1 and Dorchester County for another term.”
