SBA President On Dietl

Today the Sergeants Benevolent Association endorsed Nicole Malliotakis for mayor.  Among the rival candidates the SBA passed over was a retired colleague, former NYPD detective Bo Dietl.  When I asked SBA President Ed Mullins about passing on Dietl he offered a kind word, saying he considered Dietl a friend, but had little else to say about Dietl.  Mullins offered the conclusion that Malliotakis would be better for the members of the NYPD and for the people of New York City and noted her enthusiasm and engagement with the SBA, but didn’t offer any detailed description of the SBA’s decision to pass on Dietl.
