Steve Farley Endorsed by the Professional Fire Fighters of Arizona

Phoenix, AZ—Today, the Farley for Arizona campaign announced the endorsement of the Professional Fire Fighters of Arizona (PFFAZ) in the Democratic primary.

“We are proud to endorse Steve Farley for Governor in the Democratic primary because of his longstanding support of Arizona’s 7,000 professional fire fighters while serving in the Arizona State Legislature.  For years, Steve has fought for the safety and wellbeing of the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect their fellow citizens.  We look forward to continuing our relationship and serving our communities together,” said Executive Vice-President of PFFAZ, Joe Hester. 

“In the case of an emergency, Arizonans can rely on fire fighters to always be there to protect us.  As governor, I hope to be that sort of leader for our emergency responders. No one rushing into danger for their fellow neighbors should ever feel ill-equipped or poorly compensated for the hazardous career they’ve taken on. I am so honored and humbled by PFFA’s endorsement and am excited about working together for years to come,” said State Senator and Democratic candidate for Arizona Governor, Steve Farley.

PFFAZ joins a long list of union support for Farley which already includes the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT), the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART), and the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers (IAMAW).
