Florida Professional Firefighters Endorse Pam Bondi for Attorney General
Association represents more than 24,000 emergency services personnel
Tallahassee, Fla. – The Florida Professional Firefighters Inc. today endorsed Pam Bondi as Florida's Attorney General. The statewide association made a motion to endorse Bondi during its annual convention on Friday, and the group voted unanimously to support her bid for reelection.
“It is an honor to speak with this group of brave men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day to save the lives and property of others,” said Pam Bondi, who gave remarks at the convention. “I am thrilled to receive the endorsement from this fine organization and appreciate their support.”
The Florida Professional Firefighters held the convention in Naples, Fla., last week. Association members not only enjoyed fellowship with peers, but also they attended seminars, heard from guest speakers, presented awards, elected officers and much more.
“Florida Professional Firefighters is pleased to endorse Pam Bondi for Attorney General,” said Jim Tolley, FRF President and CEO. “She has demonstrated a commitment to public safety, and in doing so has earned our trust and confidence.”
The Florida Professional Firefighters Inc. is a state association chartered by the International Association of Fire Fighters. Six IAFF local members formed the statewide association 70 years ago. Since then, it has grown to represent more than 24,000 full-time, paid firefighters and Emergency Medical Services personnel, working in 175 departments within the various state, county, municipal, and special district governments of Florida. The association provides government relations advocacy for firefighters and EMS personnel in the State Capitol. For more information about the Florida Professional Firefighters, visit www.fpfp.org.
