Local Firefighters Union Endorse Ashley for City Council
I’m proud to announce my recent endorsement by the Santa Cruz City Fire Department Firefighters Local 1716. I want to thank the local firefighters for their support, and want them to know I will be the public safety advocate they deserve for putting their lives on the line for the community every day.
Too often, we see city leaders trying to make public safety decisions based on political correctness, which can often compromise public safety. As the spouse of a Fire Captain, I can understand and relate from first hand experience the challenges put on our public safety support network.
I support improving public safety in our community for our firefighters, police, and first responders, and I’m not afraid to talk about it. We need more county resources and I will work hard to get that support from the county. I’ll be meeting folks at Bhody at 1526 Pacific Avenue on Wednesday night from 7-8PM. I’d love to meet and chat and answer any questions you might have. Stop by and say hi!
