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.”

Asm. Green Endorsed by the Professional Firefighter Association

Firefighters Association Issues its List of Assembly Endorsements

The Professional Association of Firefighters Association today announced their endorsements for the upcoming New Jersey Assembly and New Jersey Senate district #5 elections.
“At this juncture in our States challenging times, we need legislators who have the same values of the Firefighters, EMS personnel and the working men and women who are the heart and soul of our great state”, said Dominick Marino, President of the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey.
“As a professional firefighter’s union, we have made it a point to endorse and support candidates based upon either their performance or stated positions or a combination thereof concerning our issues, not their political affiliation. We pride ourselves on being a bipartisan group.  Our membership consists of dedicated public safety professionals, hardworking taxpayers supporting families who cherish and exercise their right to vote-something too many aspiring politicians forget or purposely disregard when considering the value of our support."
“Having the right people in the state legislature is paramount for firefighters and emergency medical personnel to ensure safe working conditions and the necessary equipment to safely perform the duties of fire responders.  With the threat of terrorist activity in New Jersey and the metropolitan area becoming more prevalent than ever, we need legislators that will respond to our needs.  We believe our endorse candidates will respond for the first responders and the citizen of New Jersey.”
