As firefighters, our job is to protect and serve the public. When we evaluate candidates running for public office, we look for with the same passion and dedication to the people of Renton, King County, and the state of Washington that we have. We want our public officials to believe in the work we do by supporting us and the people we serve. We feel the above candidates do this and we have put our full support behind them and their campaigns. 

We encourage all citizens to carefully evaluate each candidate to determine if they truly act in the best interests of the public and public safety. Be sure the candidates you choose are working to protect the public, not their own special interests. Most importantly no matter what your views we encourage you to vote. 

Thank you for taking the time to consider the input of your local firefighters.

—Ryan Simonds, Public Relations Director, Renton Firefighters Local 864
