Columbus – Yesterday afternoon, the Ohio Association of Professional Fire Fighters (OAPFF) announced that the organization has endorsed Judge Pat DeWine in his campaign for the Ohio Supreme Court. In announcing the endorsement, OAPFF President Mark Sanders remarked that throughout Judge DeWine’s public service, he has “proven time and again that making the right decision is a higher priority than scoring political points”, and that OAPFF trusts that Judge DeWine “will bring that same ethic and perspective to Ohio’s highest court.”
Speaking about the endorsement, Judge DeWine said, “Ohio’s Professional Fire Fighters are some of the bravest, hardest working and most selfless citizens in our state. Throughout my service as a councilman and commissioner, I made it a point to ensure that all of our first responders were well-equipped and treated with the respect they deserve, and I am honored that the OAPFF has endorsed my campaign for the Ohio Supreme Court.”
The Ohio Association of Professional Fire Fighters joins a growing number of groups, including the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, the Ohio Farm Bureau and the Ohio State Medical Association, that have endorsed Judge DeWine.
