November 2014 Election: Endorsements

After an extensive interview process, Marin Professional Firefighters, and California Professional Firefighters, has identified a bipartisan list of candidates it believes would be the strongest firefighter choices for statewide office in this November's General Election.

The CPF endorsements for the 2014 election were the product of weeks of interviews with dozens of candidates from both sides of the political aisle.

In addition to the link above, the endorsements are available in the members-only “Campaign” section of the CPF app. The app, which also includes news, incident updates and a digital pocket guide of the Firefighter Bill of Rights, is available for download on both Apple and Android devices.
