Today, I am so proud to receive the endorsement of the Professional Association of Firefighters. These brave men and women risk their lives to protect us and deserve our support and our gratitude. Here is a statement from Dominick Marino, President of the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey.
"At this juncture in our State's challenging times, we need legislators who have the same values of the Firefighters, EMS personnel and the working men and women who are the heart and soul of our great state”, said Dominick Marino, President of the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey.
“As a professional firefighter’s union, we have made it a point to endorse and support candidates based upon either their performance or stated positions or a combination thereof concerning our issues, not their political affiliation. We pride ourselves on being a bipartisan group. Our membership consists of dedicated public safety professionals, hardworking taxpayers, supporting families who cherish and exercise their right to vote - something too many aspiring politicians forget or purposely disregard when considering the value of our support.
Having the right people in the state legislature is paramount for firefighters and emergency medical personnel to ensure safe working conditions and the necessary equipment to safely perform the duties of fire responders. With the threat of terrorist activity in New Jersey and the metropolitan area becoming more prevalent than ever, we need legislators that will respond to our needs. We believe our endorsed candidates will respond for the first responders and the citizens of New Jersey.”
