Fire Union Won’t Endorse, AFL-CIO Backs Nirenberg

By Don Morgan

The two candidates for Mayor better not hold their breath while waiting for an endorsement from the San Antonio Professional Firefighter’s Association. They’re not getting behind either of them.

We called the Association to ask whether or not they’d endorse either Ivy Taylor or Ron Nirenberg and they emailed this response.

“At this moment, the San Antonio Professional Firefighters Association will not be getting involved with the mayor’s race. We have issues with both candidates and will not be giving our endorsement for either candidate at this time.”

However, the AFL-CIO is endorsing a candidate. They’ve released a statement announcing the endorsement of Ron Nirenberg.
