New Bedford firefighters endorse Tony Cabral

State Rep. Tony Cabral, a candidate for Mayor of New Bedford, today announced that he has been endorsed by New Bedford Firefighters IAFF Local 841, which represents members of the New Bedford Fire Department.

In a letter announcing the endorsement, Local 841 President James Allen cited Cabral’s support of organized labor and his record of “fighting for all working families in Massachusetts.” Allen noted that Cabral makes sure that labor unions are “fairly heard on important issues,” and that he has given them “a seat at the table on pension and health care reforms.”

“Having witnessed your dedication and commitment to New Bedford and its residents for over twenty years, we are sure you will be a great mayor for our city,” Allen wrote.

“I am honored to have the support of our brave firefighters,” Cabral said.  “Our firefighters are extremely important to public safety in New Bedford, and I have been fighting throughout my career to ensure that they have the protections they need to do their jobs and support their families.  As Mayor, I will work with our firefighters and help them secure the tools they need to fight fires effectively and safely.”

IAFF Local 841 joins more than a dozen labor organizations that have endorsed Cabral for Mayor, clear evidence that Cabral is the candidate best able to represent the working men and women of New Bedford.

The New Bedford Firefighters IAFF Local 841 was established in 1945 for the betterment of the members of the New Bedford Fire Department.
