Texas, McAllen firefighter groups endorse Sergio Muñoz, Jr. for state representative

(McAllen) - Noting his strong support for public safety and working families, the McAllen Fire Fighters Association and its statewide organization, the Texas State Association of Fire Fighters, have endorsed Sergio Muñoz, Jr. for State Representative, House District 36.

House District 36 includes Granjeno, Hidalgo, southern McAllen, most of Mission, Palmview, Peñitas, and Pharr.

"We, the 139 members of the McAllen Fire Fighters Association Local 2602, are proud to present you with this letter of endorsement," Amado Cano, general president of the area group, stated in its support for Muñoz. "We feel that with your personnel beliefs, education and experience you will be a positive influence to the State Representative Office and the citizens of District 36.  We look forward to working with you during your campaign and would like to offer our assistance, as well as our endorsement."

Mike Higgins, the chief-of-staff and legislative director for the Texas State Association of Fire Fighters, said the local support for Muñoz also brought a statewide endorsement from his group, which represents more than 15,000 professional fire fighters and 169 affiliate locals.

The statewide show of support reflects the legislative policies of Muñoz, a successful lawyer and Palmview Municipal Court Judge, to be "a strong supporter of public safety and fire fighters across Texas,"

Higgins said.

The Texas State Association of Fire Fighters was established in 1938 and it is Texas's only professional, career fire fighters organization.

The Texas State Association of Fire Fighters is affiliated with the International Association of Fire Fighters.

Muñoz said he was grateful for the endorsements, noting that protecting the public is one of the most important responsibilities of the Texas Legislature.

"Fire fighters, like police, emergency medical service personnel, and other law enforcement professionals have my highest admiration – these are the brave men and women who rush into danger to save our lives, our homes and our businesses," said Muñoz. "I look forward to working with them on all major legislation that helps and protect them, because that will help and protect all of us."
