CPF recommendations focus on firefighter issues, not party labels
California Professional Firefighters makes recommendations in the statewide contests based entirely on where candidates and causes impact the lives and livelihoods of first responders:
- Better staffing and equipment on the job
- Reasonable pay and benefits for doing the job
- Workplace protections for those injured on the job
- Security for the families of those who give their lives on the job
- Reasonable retirement security for a lifetime of service
Legislative endorsements are made in close consultation with our local affiliates. Both Republicans and Democrats are represented, and CPF’s list of recommendations is widely seen as the most bipartisan in labor.
