California Professional Firefighters

CPF Primary Endorsement 2012

Only candidates who interviewed with the CPF Executive Board were eligible for consideration. “Neutral” means there is more than one candidate supportive of first responders. “No Endorsement” means CPF either found no firefighter-friendly candidates or were simply unable to arrange meetings with candidates during the interview process. For more detail on why CPF makes endorsements and the decision making process, please see the President’s Message.
