Mar 18, 2024

IAFF endorsement follows seven in-district locals backing Franz

Tacoma, Washington – Today, the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) announced a rare early endorsement by backing Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz in the race for Congress in Washington’s Sixth Congressional District. The International’s endorsement comes after seven in-district locals endorsed Franz, along with more than a dozen other labor organizations.

“Hilary’s support of our craft throughout her career as an elected official and before is notable as she wears it on her sleeve,” said Ricky Walsh, IAFF 7th District Vice President. “To say we endorse her is an understatement. She has been there for us and we are there for her.”

“I’m so honored to have IAFF’s support in this race,” Franz said. “As the state’s Lands and Fire Chief, I know firsthand the hard work our firefighters and all first responders do every day. I will always fight for them in Congress, because they always answer the call for us, no matter what.”
