43. IAFF "Firefighters for Kerry" site.....great site supporting Kerry....
Edited on Wed Aug-04-04 06:33 PM by ElsewheresDaughter /

letter from the general president of the IAFF:

Today there is a powerful new team for America. Senator John Kerry announced that he has asked Senator John Edwards of North Carolina to join his Team for a New America as his choice for Vice President.

John Kerry wanted a Vice President who could meet the challenges of our time, who was ready to be President, and who shared his vision and his values. He chose John Edwards, a proven leader and fighter for all Americans.

Fire Fighters across the nation know of the two Americas so often mentioned by John Edwards and the tough issues facing the middle class, because they have struggled with the high cost of health care, quality education for their children and the many challenges faced by working people in todays economy.

John Edwards knows first hand of the struggles faced by working families. As the son of a mill worker, he learned at an early age of the importance of hard work and sacrifice for your family. He saw the need for justice for working and middle income families, to stand up and fight for decent pay, health care and benefits.

And John Edwards will work tirelessly along side John Kerry to build a stronger middle class in America, to protect our homeland, and to rebuild our image across the globe once again.

Senator Edwards has stood with Kerry as a co-sponsor for the IAFF Collective Bargaining Legislation and has been a champion for fire fighters in a Southern state that prohibits collective bargaining.

As a member of the Senate Intelligence committee and the Committee investigating 9/11, he understands what fire fighters confront as Americas first responders in the post-9/11 world, and he shares John Kerrys vision of how to make America safer.

With this team, Americas fire fighters will have a voice and a team thats on our side. Together, the Kerry-Edwards ticket will lead America toward a brighter future.

The IAFF now has a ticket to ride. For the Kerry-Edwards ticket to be successful, we will have to be vigilant in our efforts. Do your part to help the campaign. Make a contribution to the Kerry-Edwards campaign fund by visiting:

Thank you and God bless.

Harold A. Schaitberger

General President
