    LB Firefighters' Union Leadership Endorses Foster For Mayor

    (December 21, 2005) -- LB Firefighters Association Local 372 has endorsed Bob Foster for Mayor of LB.

    In a release emailed by LB Firefighters Association acting president Reies Montes, the union said Mr. Foster "will provide the leadership and energy necessary to lead the City of Long Beach in the coming years."

    Mr. Montes told the endorsement on behalf of the roughly 425-member LB firefighters' union results from an 11-0 vote of its Executive Committee. The group's release went on to say:

    Bob Foster's commitment to public safety and to the City’s financial well being demonstrates that his priorities reflect both the will of the citizens of Long Beach and the firefighters who serve the City. Firefighters are confident that Foster will be an advocate of the City's first responders and that he will ensure that public safety staffing, resources, and service will remain among the City's highest priorities. In addition, his experience as President of Southern California Edison, coupled with his years of service in the public and non-profit sectors, shows both a remarkable talent to lead and a capacity for uniting diverse opinions.

    Mr. Foster responded to the endorsement with the following statement:

    Fire fighters deserve our thanks for the tough job that they do. But, just as importantly, they require our support. Long Beach, home to nearly 500,000 people, one of the nation's largest container ports, and substantial commercial enterprises, faces unique challenges. We must be prepared for potential terrorist threats and catastrophic disaster. Long Beach fire fighters are our front line of defense. As Mayor, I will be their partner in working to make Long Beach safer and more secure. I am honored to have their support.

    As reported by in mid-November, the LB Police Officers Association (POA) also endorsed Mr. Foster. POA President Steve James said the endorsement results from a vote of the POA's political action committee...which is open to the group's roughly 900 members although only roughly 15 POA members attended and voted on the Foster endorsement.
