The Palm Springs Police Officers Association has endorsed candidates Henry Hampton and Lisa Middleton for the two seats up for election on the Palm Springs City Council this November. “After interviewing six of the candidates running for Palm Springs City Council, we decided to support Henry Hampton and Lisa Middleton for the two open seats,” said Joe Cook, president of the Palm Springs Police Officers Association. “Of the candidates we interviewed, these are the two candidates who best understand the challenges facing the Palm Springs Police Department,” Cook said. “Henry Hampton will be a much-needed voice on the City Council on matters of public safety and financial responsibility. Lisa Middleton will provide a strong and unifying presence on the Palm Springs City Council.” “The Palm Springs Police Officers Association looks forward to working collaboratively with Mr. Hampton and Ms. Middleton to increase the number of sworn peace officers in our department to a level that will allow us to properly serve and protect all residents and neighborhoods in the City of Palm Springs,” Cook said. Henry Hampton and Lisa Middleton are running for the two open seats on the Palm Springs City Council. Incumbents Ginny Foat and Chris Mills are retiring and not seeking re-election this fall.
