Int’l Association of Fire Fighters Endorse Scott Peters for Congress
Peters is the only Democrat in the 52nd Backed by Public Safety Professionals 

San Diego – The Scott Peters for Congress campaign today announced the endorsement of another international association: The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF). IAFF joins the San Diego City Fire Fighters Association and former City of San Diego Fire Chief Jeff Bowman in backing Peters, making him the only Democratic candidate in the race for the 52nd Congressional District to be backed by public safety professionals.

“While on the City Council, Scott got new fire and police stations built and boosted public safety budgets to reduce emergency response times, all without raising taxes,” said MaryAnne Pintar, Peters Campaign Communications Director.

“They know first-hand that when it comes to public safety, Scott gets it and gets it done for them, and for the communities they risk their lives to protect,” she said.

Headquartered in Washington, DC, IAFF represents more than 300,000 full-time professional fire fighters and paramedics who protect 85 percent of the nation’s population.
