Newsom for California is pleased to announce the endorsement of San Francisco Firefighters Local 798, which represents 1,600 firefighters.
This is Mayor Newsom’s second public-safety endorsement in the race for governor, having been endorsed previouslyby the San Francisco Deputy Sheriffs’ Association.
“The residents of San Francisco depend on the courage and hard work of our local firefighters,” said Mayor Newsom.
“Their sacrifices are many, and their dedication to the safety of our city never wanes. I am honored that the men and women of Local 798 have put their trust in me.”
Local 798 President John Hanley said his members voted to endorse Newsom on Thursday. “Gavin understands the challenges faced by our members, and has consistently stood with firefighters on many issues.
We’re standing with him in his run for governor because we believe he will provide the leadership to get California back on track,” Hanley said.
