Los Angeles, CA – The International Association of Firefighters Local 112, the United Firefighters of Los Angeles (UFLAC), representing Los Angeles' heroic first responders, today announced their endorsement of Kevin de León's candidacy for Los Angeles City Council District 14.
"Kevin de León has both the vision and proven leadership abilities required to elevate Council District 14 to its fullest potential,” said Freddy Escobar, President of UFLAC. "He is our trusted ally for a reason: he never forgets his friends and never backs down from a fight. Local 112 is honored to support Kevin in his bid for City Council District 14"
"Not only are the members of Local 112 our first call on our darkest days but, due to our current homelessness crisis, they also serve as a lifeline for so many unhoused Angelenos," said de León. "I am deeply moved that they saw fit to stand by my side once again as we bring our fight for working people to the city level."
