RACINE, WI – Today, the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin endorsed Randy Bryce for Congress, citing his commitment to issues affecting the health and safety of fire fighters and his support of unions in Wisconsin.
“This endorsement is an honor. Having marched alongside my fellow union brothers and sisters from the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin in the fight for working people during the Act 10 protests, their support now means so much to me,” said Randy Bryce. “For too long, Paul Ryan and the Republicans have listened to everyone except Wisconsin’s working people– and I believe his hand-picked replacement will do the same. This needs to change. Good health care is vital when you work a dangerous job. Social Security and pensions are earned with every day of hard work– and they need to be preserved and protected for the working people of our state. We need to create more good-paying union jobs where people can earn a living wage. I know the working people of the First District deserve more than what they have been getting for the past 20 years. I am ready to roll up my sleeves and fight for the people of Southeast Wisconsin.”
“We need to elect more candidates like Randy Bryce to fight for working people in Congress,” said Mahlon Mitchell, State President of Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin. “As a fellow union member, Randy Bryce has the full support and endorsement of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin. Randy knows what it is like to put in long hours in order to put food on the table. Randy knows how important it is to have access to good healthcare. Randy knows how important unions are in order to make sure everyone has a safe workplace where they can go and earn a living wage. And I know when Randy is elected our members can rest assured that they will have true representation in Congress.”
