The Pennsylvania Professional Fire Fighters Association (PPFFA) announced yesterday that they are formally endorsing Santarsiero.
“In the State House, Steve has been a champion for public safety workers and a devoted voice for active and retired fire fighters across Pennsylvania and that’s exactly the type of leadership we need in Congress,” said PPFFA President Art Martynuska. “Steve understands the sacrifice our first responders make everyday, he’s had our backs and we are proud to endorse his run for Congress.”
“I’m proud to have the support of the brave first responders that risk their lives to keep our communities safe day in and day out,” Santarsiero responded. “In Congress, I’ll fight to make sure they have the support and resources to keep us safe and retire with the dignity and security they clearly deserve.”
Santarsiero is running against 2014 candidate Shaughnessy Naughton in the Democratic primary.
The 8th Congressional District consists of all of Bucks County as well as part of upper Montgomery County.
