“Congresswoman Barbara Comstock has worked hand in hand with the brothers and sisters of the firefighter and paramedic community from day one in Congress,” said IAFF Local 2068 President John Niemiec. “When she said that her door would always be open to us, she meant it and we appreciate that Congresswoman Comstock has already demonstrated herself as a leader on the development of a national cancer registry for firefighters and cosponsoring the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act. This legislation that was signed into law helps our brothers and sisters who responded to the terrorist attacks in New York and locally here at the Pentagon with the proper medical care for any illnesses that can be traced back to the events of that horrific day.”
“As I travel throughout Virginia’s 10 th Congressional District and visit with professional firefighters and paramedics on the local level, I am constantly reminded of the sacrifices these brave men and women make on a daily basis to protect their fellow citizens in our community,” said Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA). “That is why it is such an honor to receive this endorsement from the firefighters and paramedics of IAFF Local 2068. In Congress, I will continue to find bipartisan solutions that will help our firefighters and paramedics do their jobs in a safe manner. I appreciate the support of IAFF Local 2068 and look forward to continuing to work with these dedicated public servants in the future.”
