About Political Action

Local 1159 Political Action

The purpose of Local 1159’s political action is to support public safety and to maintain and improve the health, safety, and security of our firefighters.

Our Political Action Committee (PAC) evaluates and recommends specific candidates or ballot measures for endorsement to the General Membership of Local 1159.

Our top priority is to keep the men and women of all the fire agencies we represent safe. For that reason, we have been very involved in the electoral process for decades by supporting candidates for office at the local and state level who have demonstrated their dedication to public safety and desire to keep our firefighters a top priority in their administration.

The Local 1159 PAC is non-partisan and does not recommend candidates based on party affiliation. We selectively support candidates and elected officials that share our priorities, support firefighter issues, and/or may have a beneficial effect in maintaining and improving public safety and the health, safety, and security of firefighters.
