From the press release:
“Rick Noriega is a patriot who has served our nation and our great state with honor and distinction” said Bob York, TSAFF Secretary-Treasurer.
Yorkcontinued “no other candidate for U.S. Senate could better represent fire fighters and the interests of working men and women across the ”. United States
Representative Noriega successfully amended the Fire Fighter and Police Officer Civil Service law to allow those fire fighters or police officers serving in the military to utilize paid leave donated by their co-workers. He has sponsored several other bills on behalf of professional fire fighters and since Representative Noriega’s election to the Texas House of Representatives, he has a 100 percent record of supporting fire fighter legislation.
With a generous DONATION
In the meantime, Noriega’s opponent, Mikal Watts has also been in the news: Senate candidate played up contributions to justices.
