2017 Elections

Letter from the president
for the 2017 Political endorsements


The Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey, IAFF, AFL-CIO, statewide representative of career professional firefighters, emergency medical and allied support service personnel affiliated with the 302,000 member International Association of Fire Fighters has announced their endorsements for the upcoming New Jersey Governor, Assembly and Senate elections.

“At this juncture in our States challenging times and after eight years of an executive branch bent on breaking the backs of the hard-working middle class, 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 and emergency medical personnel union, we have made it a point to endorse and support candidates based on 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. We support those who support firefighters and EMS workers. 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 every present threat of terrorist activity in New Jersey and the metropolitan area, we need legislators that will respond to our needs. We believe our endorsed candidates will respond for the first responders and the citizen of New Jersey.”

Dominick Marino

Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey
