“On behalf of the over 500 men and women that make up the Orlando Professional Firefighters, we are pleased to endorse Stephanie Murphy for United States Congress,” said Ron Glass, president of I.A.F.F. Local 1365. “The Orlando Professional Firefighters Local 1365 have always taken great pride in their involvement with the political process as well as the endorsement of candidates who help serve in the best interest of public safety. As an experienced public servant with a clear vision for the needs of firefighters and the citizens of Florida alike, we look forward to working with Stephanie Murphy on various important issues during her tenure as a U.S. Representative.”
“The Seminole County Fire Fighters are pleased to endorse Stephanie Murphy,” said Mike Edmiston, president of the I.A.F.F. Local 3254. “This election is about making a difference. Stephanie is a champion for the middle class and will work to improve the lives of families throughout the Seventh District.”
Murphy said she will always stand with those in uniform and will work with both Republicans and Democrats to keep our communities safe.
“As someone who worked alongside our men and women in uniform in the Pentagon, I have always believed we need to have the backs of those who protect and serve our communities and our country,” said Murphy. “Our top priority should never be partisanship – it should always be to keep our communities and our neighborhoods safe. I am incredibly honored to receive the endorsement of the brave fire fighters in the Seventh Congressional District and other first responders who risk their lives and run into danger when others are running out. In Congress, I will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our brave public servants to ensure they have the training, resources and support they need to keep our communities safe.”
