Both Lord and Rothschild are honored to have received this endorsement. "My family and I moved here for two reasons: the community is safe and it has great schools. I appreciate all that our law enforcement does for this county and am looking forward to working with the FOP and our local law enforcement," Rothschild said. Lord continued, "With their commitment and dedication that help make Carroll County a safe place to live, work, play and raise a family, I am honored to be endorsed by our courageous men and women in law enforcement."
