Milwaukee Professional Firefighters Association Announces Support for Tommy Thompson

Madison, WI – The Milwaukee Professional Firefighters Association (MPFFA) announced its endorsement of former Gov. Tommy Thompson for the U.S. Senate, citing his strong record on emergency response and support for first responders.

"Tommy's record as governor speaks for itself," said Dave Seager, president of the MPFFA. "He has always supported the profession of the fire service and those who lay their lives on the line on a daily basis. Tommy has always been consistent in his support for us during his tenure as Governor and Health and Human Services Secretary, and I know he will be in the future as a U.S. Senator. Given the opportunity, Governor Thompson would have been the first in line to sign the 9/11 legislation."

"I am honored to have the support of the MPFFA," said Thompson. "The brave men and women of the MPFFA are true public servants who put themselves in harm's way every day to ensure the safety and protection of the residents of Milwaukee. As Senator, I will continue to be a vocal advocate for public safety and provide our heroes at fire departments across Wisconsin with the resources they need to do their jobs safely and efficiently. I appreciate this important endorsement and applaud the MPFFA for its continued dedication to protecting our residents."
