ASSOCIATED FIRE FIGHTERS OF ILLINOIS ENDORSE CHAPIN ROSE & ADAM BROWN IN REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES

Champaign, approved IL – The Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois (AFFI) today announced its endorsements of Chapin Rose in the 51st Senate District and Adam Brown in the 102nd House District.

The AFFI represents over 15,000 members in 211 communities across the state. The firefighters said these two individuals will be the best advocates for public safety and ensure Illinois firefighters have the resources necessary to keep the citizens and first responders safe.

“Both of these individuals have impressed us with their depth of knowledge on issues important not only to firefighters, but to all working men and women in their districts and the state,” said Pat Devaney, President of the AFFI. “At a time when financial resources are at a premium, it’s good to know the voters have an opportunity to elect someone with fiscal integrity as well as concern for public safety.”

AFFI Legislative Representative Chuck Sullivan stated that, “Representative Rose and Representative Brown have shown a true willingness to work with us on serious and complex issues. We are proud to stand with Adam and Chapin. They are hard-working legislators that represent their constituents well.”

The AFFI is among the most respected advocacy groups before the Illinois General Assembly and represents firefighters’ efforts statewide in protecting lives and property from fire and other catastrophic events.
