Virginia Professional Fire Fighters Endorse Del. Lopez for Re-Election
Cite Lopez’s Experience and Commitment to Public Safety
ARLINGTON – The Virginia Professional Fire Fighters have endorsed Delegate Alfonso Lopez for Re-Election in the race for Virginia’s 49th House District. The Virginia Professional Fire Fighters is an association representing career professional fire fighters and paramedics in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Founded in 1955, they provide fire protection and emergency medical services to 70% of Virginia’s population.
“I’m deeply honored to receive the endorsement of the Virginia Professional Fire Fighters for my re-election campaign,” said Delegate Lopez (D-Arlington). “Fire fighters and paramedics put their lives on the line every day to keep our community safe. I look forward to continuing our work in the General Assembly to ensure that fire fighters and their families have the protections and support that they need.”
“Delegate Lopez has been a steadfast advocate for Fire Fighters and Paramedics in the House of Delegates,” said Robert L Bragg, III, president of the Virginia Professional Fire Fighters. “Championing a ban on toxic chemical flame retardants that dramatically increase the risk of cancer for fire fighters, Delegate Lopez has proven to be a proactive leader for public safety issues in the General Assembly. We need his continued leadership in the House of Delegates.”
