On Monday, International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 718 unanimously endorsed At-Large City Councilor Annissa Essaibi George in her candidacy for Mayor of Boston citing her unwavering support for Boston’s first responders.
“Boston’s firefighters are proud to endorse Annissa Essaibi George for Mayor of Boston,” said John Soares, IAFF Local 718 President. “Since her early days on the Boston City Council, she has demonstrated her unwavering commitment and support for Boston’s first responders. From showing up at our firehouses with coffee, to picking up the phone to check in on our brave men and women, to advocating for investments in our health and safety, she has our backs and we have unanimously voted to have hers in this race.”
Said Essaibi George, “Our firefighters are a constant source of inspiration and pride to our city,” said Essaibi George. “As a little girl, my family home caught on fire, but we all made it out safely thanks to Boston’s brave firefighters. It’s no surprise that I hold a special place in my heart for them. Their sacrifices and bravery keep our city and its residents safe. I’m honored to have their support.”
