Mayoral Candidate Mike Hogan Receives Fire Endorsement

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There's another big endorsement for Republican Mike Hogan in his bid to become mayor.

Hogan picked up the support of the 1,200-member Jacksonville Association of Firefighters.

The endorsement came at the association headquarters this morning with union president Randy Wyse saying, "All we are looking for is honesty."

In accepting the endorsement on the platform of an old fire truck, Hogan told firefighters that he believes in honesty, but, "I'm going to represent taxpayers first."

Pensions and salary cuts are big issues facing city employees, but Hogan told firefighters that he intends to make sure they are "properly paid and properly compensated."

Hogan has already received the backing of the Fraternal Order of Police.

Hogan is competing for votes against fellow republicans Audrey Moran and Rick Mullaney, democrats Alvin Brown and Warren Lee and several write-in or independent candidates in the March 22 election.

If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the votes, the next election will be May 17.
