Today, Jersey City Fire Fighters and Officers announced their endorsement for Congressman Rob Menendez to continue to serve the residents and communities of New Jersey’s Eighth Congressional District.

“Rob is a proven champion for firefighters, emergency medical, and allied support services personnel,” said Jersey City Fire Fighters and Officers Association President Peter Nowak and President of the Uniformed Fire Fighters Association of Jersey City Joseph W. Krajnik. “He continues to make a tremendous positive impact by creating legislation like H.R. 7702 which will study vessel fires near the shoreline to reduce danger and risk for both firefighters and our communities, and by delivering funding for our first responders. Rob is responsive to our concerns and he has made it clear that he is a strong ally for our unionized brothers and sisters. We have been deeply impressed by Congressman Rob Menendez’s relentless work ethic and we are proud to endorse him for re-election because we know he will always fight for us.”

“I am grateful to be supported by our friends and partners at Jersey City Fire Fighters and Officers,” said Congressman Rob Menendez. “I will always be a strong advocate to secure funding, equipment, health and safety protections, and much more to support our brave fire fighters and courageous first responders. I look forward to our continued collaboration and we will win this election – together.”
