Jim Haggerty has the endorsement of the local firefighters union. I received this in the email:
Kingston Mayor Jim Haggerty, candidate for state senate in the 20th Senatorial District, has received the unanimous endorsement of the Luzerne County Professional Firefighters Local 840, said president George Tomasak.
"Our firefighters are proud to endorse Mayor Haggerty in the state senate race," Tomasak said. "Mayor Haggerty has been a strong advocate for both our firefighters and for making our communities safer. He has ensured that we have sufficient manpower, training and equipment to do our job and to protect the public. We are proud to endorse Mayor Haggerty and we have the greatest confidence that he will be an outstanding state senator."
Luzerne County Professional Firefighters Local 840 is a unit of the Pennsylvania Professional Firefighters Association, an affiliate of the International Association of Firefighters. Tomasak is President of Local 840 and serves as a professional firefighter in the Borough of Edwardsville.
