The Virginia Professional Fire Fighters (VPFF) announced Monday morning that they are endorsing Terry McAuliffe for governor.
“Terry McAuliffe was a friend to public safety and organized labor during his first administration as Governor of the Commonwealth,” stated Robert Bragg, President of the VPFF. “We know Terry McAuliffe will continue working hard to protect and enhance the safety, benefits and working conditions of our firefighters. We look forward to working with him as he becomes the 74th Governor of Virginia.”
McAuliffe is competing with Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin and Independent candidate Princess Blanding.
“Virginia’s firefighters are vital first responders working to keep us all safe, and I’m so thankful for all the work that they do. Every single day, our firefighters put themselves at risk on the front lines to help us out in times of crisis, and I will fight every day to do the same for them. We need to make sure that our firefighters have safe working conditions, good pay and the benefits they deserve,” said Terry McAuliffe. “I am so proud to have the endorsement of the VPFF and I look forward to fighting every day for these Virginians as governor.”
