The Sacramento Area Firefighters and the California Professional Firefighters endorsed State Assembly Member Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) for the State Senate seat that includes Elk Grove.

Pan, who represents Elk Grove in the 9th Assembly District, faces Assembly Member Roger Dickinson (D-Sacramento) in the Senate race.

“When budget cuts threatened to close fire stations, Dr. Pan wrote legislation to sustain those vital services and keep our communities safe,” said Brian Rice, Sacramento Area Firefighters president. “Dr. Pan has been a champion on public safety issues, and Sacramento firefighters are proud to endorse Dr. Pan for State Senate.”

The organization represents firefighters with agencies including the Cosumnes Fire Department.

California Professional Firefighters is the largest statewide organization to serve career firefighters with more than 30,000 members.
