Firefighters group applauds Kuster’s commitment to supporting New Hampshire workers and promoting efforts to protect public safety
Concord, NH – This afternoon in Concord, the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire (PFFNH), a division of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) endorsed Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) for reelection to New Hampshire’s Second Congressional seat. The endorsement event took place at the PFFNH’s New Hampshire headquarters on Centre Street.
“Our fire fighters and public safety officials constantly put their own lives on the line in order to keep our families out of harm’s way, and since taking office, I’ve been proud to push for legislation to ensure they have the resources and support they need to do their jobs safely and effectively,” said Congresswoman Annie Kuster. “I’m so pleased to receive the endorsement of the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire, and I thank them for all they do to serve and protect communities across the Granite State. I look forward to continuing to work together to keep Granite State families safe throughout my next term in office.”
The PFFNH represents fire fighters and paramedics from across the Granite State, and is comprised of 43 local unions. As the voice for many of the state’s public safety employees, the PFFNH is proud to announce its endorsement of Congresswoman Annie Kuster because of her commitment to supporting crucial public safety programs, and her efforts to fight for workers in the state.
“As our Congresswoman, Annie Kuster has made it clear that she fights for the issues that matter to fire fighters, and to the middle class families in our state. Our Congresswoman stands up for her beliefs, and she believes that good government means strong public safety. She has proven she stands for us, has the experience, and continues to lead the fight to ensure that our state is safe. We look forward to continuing to work with Congresswoman Kuster,” stated Dave Lang, President of the Professional Fire Fighters of New Hampshire.
Congresswoman Annie Kuster has a strong history of protecting workers rights, working to create jobs in New Hampshire, and supporting the public safety efforts of local first responders. Since taking office, Kuster has fought to protect programs like the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) and the SAFER grants, which provide crucial resources like safety equipment and training for fire departments and public safety offices throughout the Granite State. Earlier this year, Kuster sent a letter to the Chairman and the Ranking Member of the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee outlining the importance of these programs to New Hampshire, and urging for the programs’ continued funding.
