LOWELL, Mass. (Nov. 20, 2019) – Democrat Lori Trahan proudly announces the endorsement of the Professional Fire Fighters of Massachusetts in her re-election bid for Congress in Massachusetts Third District.
The Professional Fire Fighters of Massachusetts (PFFM) is a strong and respected union representing more than 12,000 courageous men and women. Richard MacKinnon Jr., president of the PFFM, praised Trahan for her work on behalf of firefighters across the Commonwealth.
“As the daughter of a Union Ironworker, Congresswoman Trahan has a deep-rooted understanding that the best way to bolster middle-class families is to support organized labor,” MacKinnon said. “Congresswoman Trahan plays a crucial role in Washington D.C. to secure funding for vital federal programs used to purchase necessary firefighting equipment. Not only do we enjoy a great working relationship with Congresswoman Trahan, but her entire staff. The Professional Fire Fighters of Massachusetts is proud to endorse her for re-election.”
Trahan thanked the union for it support and for its tireless work on behalf of all families.
“The brave men and women of this union give generously in time and effort to make our communities safer and stronger and are always ready to put their own lives at risk to save others when an emergency arises,” Trahan said. “Firefighters face uncertainty and danger every time the alarm sounds and I will always do everything in my power to ensure that they have the equipment and resources they need to return home after a shift. I am humbled by the PFFM’s support and I thank them for their immeasurable service to us all.”
