January 30, 2018 – Today, Lori Trahan’s campaign announced the endorsement of the Local 853, which represents the Professional Firefighters of Lowell.
“As someone who comes from a union household and was raised in a working class family, combined with her proven leadership in business, Lori is uniquely positioned to fight for the rights of working men and women,” said Dave Keene of Lowell Firefighters Local 853. “Lori shares the same ideals as the more the 200 firefighters in Lowell, and we are proud to stand with her and support her campaign to represent our community in Washington.”
“Firefighters, like the men and women of Local 853 and countless others like them, are on the frontlines keeping members of our communities safe,” said Trahan. “I intend to go to Washington and fight for fire department resources, such as Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grants, so that every single firefighter returns home safely after a shift.”
With its roots going back nearly 200 years, the Lowell Fire Department responds to over 10,000 calls for service each year.
Today’s announcement represents the third labor endorsement for Trahan, with the Teamsters Local 25 in Boston offering their support in December, along with the Ironworkers Local 7 — Lori’s father’s union — earlier this month.
