New Jersey FMBA Endorses 2015 Legislative Candidates
Updated On: Sep 16, 2018

PolitickerNJ - The New Jersey State FMBA, representing over 5,000 career firefighters, dispatchers, and EMTs used the occasion of their statewide convention in Atlantic City to consider and act on endorsements for candidates running for the New Jersey General Assembly in this November’s elections. The endorsements came after convention delegates heard from more than 20 legislators and candidates that accepted the NJFMBA’s invitation to attend.

“The candidates that earned the unanimous endorsement of the NJ FMBA have shown not only that they understand the unique concerns of the men and women that keep New Jersey safe, but also that they are willing to stand up and fight for us in the halls of the New Jersey Statehouse,” said Eddie Donnelly, President, NJFMBA. “Whether on stage or in smaller meetings with delegates from their districts, each candidate was asked to offer their views on continued efforts to protect the Police and Firemen’s Pension System, this remains the number one focus of the NJFMBA.”

Among the candidates that addressed the convention were Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald, Assembly Budget Chairman Gary Schaer and Republican Conference Leader David Rible. Convention delegates also participated in discussions regarding professional development, physical and mental health, and community engagement.

“The well worn proverb ‘in unity there is strength’ was on clear display throughout this Convention,” said Donnelly. “Active or retired; firefighters, dispatchers or EMTs; big city or small municipality; our members are standing together, committed to making our state even better and safer, and will continue to be actively engaged in issues that affect their safety, retirement security, or community’s well being.”
