There has been much discussion on the issue of the IAFF supporting Obama for the presidency and even rumors of IAFF members leaving the ranks because of this support. I have heard members talk about their union dues going to support a candidate and being involved in this political process and it hasn’t been pretty.

I don’t know exactly who I am going to support this year (as with many of you I am sure) BUT I know one thing, leaving the ranks of our great UNION is not the answer!. When you get married you sometimes have disagreements that generally doesn’t mean you get a divorce every time. Likewise you can’t agree with every political move that comes down the pipe from the IAFF, however I believe the folks involved with running our great Union truly have Firefighters best interest at hand.

When it comes to issues that affect firefighters I believe voting records tell the story Check for yourself here In the meantime look here in order to remember WHY we are UNION firefighters in the first place.

Whether you are union or not the IAFF agenda has improved your job and safety at a minimum.

So what are YOUR opinions about this endorsment and which way are you going to vote? As for me and my house… I dunno we shall see.
