Laura Fortgang on MyVeronaNJLaura Fortgang, the Democratic challenger for New Jersey state Assembly in the 26th legislative district, has earned the endorsement of the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey.

The PFANJ, AFL-CIO is the chartered, statewide organization representing more than 4,000 active and retired professional firefighters, emergency medical and allied support services personnel in New Jersey. It is affiliated with the 318,000-member International Association of Firefighters.

“It is an incredible honor to have the support of our firefighters and first responders, who risk their lives to keep us safe. They provide us all with the security and peace of mind of knowing we can rely on these highly trained professionals in our most urgent times of need,” Fortgang said. “As the recent remembrance of the 9-11 attacks signifies, our first responders make tremendous sacrifices on our behalf. We must protect their right to binding arbitration and make sure they have the health care they need and the pensions and secure retirement they’ve earned protecting us,” Fortgang said.
