Don’t fall for endorsement claim from firefighters

To the Editor:

On April 9, the citizens of the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District will select three individuals to serve on the board of trustees for our fire district, the controlling body responsible for financial and operational policies within the district.

Recently a number of campaign signs have been posted that indicate a particular group of candidates is endorsed by “Local Firefighters” in what I believe is a blatant attempt to use the public trust in firefighters to sway an election.

As president of the union that represents the firefighters working for the district, I can ensure you that no such endorsement or support was ever offered, nor will it be. Don’t be fooled into voting for a group of candidates who want you to believe that they have the support of “Local Firefighters.”
