UFA, Uniformed EMT’s, Paramedics & Fire Inspectors, Uniformed EMS Officers and Uniformed Fire Alarm Dispatchers Benevolent Association endorse Serino for state Senate.
Today the Uniformed Firefighters Association- FDNY representing about 9,000 active New York City/FDNY firefighters, the Uniformed EMT’s Paramedics & Fire Inspectors, Local 2507- FDNY, representing over 3,000 of the FDNY EMSC and Fire Inspector employees, the Uniformed EMS Officers Union, Local 3621- FDNY, and the Uniformed Fire Alarm Dispatchers Benevolent Association- FDNY, announced their support of Dutchess County Legislator and 41st Senate District candidate Sue Serino (R,C,I- Hyde Park). The unions each highlighted Serino’s commitment to public safety and public safety officials as reasons for their support.
“Now, more than ever, it is important that we elect individuals who will protect the economy and growth of New York as well as remember the hard working people who live here. Sue’s experience and concern for public safety, public safety professionals, working families, our education system, and the economy of our state will certainly be major assets to the people of New York. They say all politics is local. Many politicians lose sight of that fact after being elected. Based upon our long personal working experience with Sue, we are confident that she will never forget the people that elected her, and will always fight to protect and enhance the interest of the people of her district and all of New York,” said Robert Ungar, Legislative Counsel for the unions.
“Having the support of the hardworking and dedicated men and women of the FDNY, who serve each day to protect New Yorkers and visitors from around the world, is truly an honor. I am humbled and proud to have them stand beside me as partners in building a better state for all New Yorkers. Our issues, repairing the economy, making New York more business friendly and providing a quality education for the next generation, are grand and it will take strong commitment from residents across the state to achieve these goals. However, together I know we can build New York into the great state it was and can be again,” said Serino.
