Montpelier, VT – Jim Condos is proud to have the support of the Professional Fire Fighters of Vermont, which announced it has voted unanimously to support his campaign to be Vermont’s next Secretary of State.    “One of the first things I did when I was first elected to the South Burlington City Council was to find out what our firefighters needed to do their jobs well,” said Condos. “Their heroic efforts for our communities underscore their vital role, and I am truly thrilled to have their support for my campaign.”
 
The union represents fire fighters, EMTs and paramedics from 12 municipal departments across Vermont – Barre City, Barre Town EMTs, Bellows Falls, Brattleboro, Burlington, Hartford, Montpelier, Rutland City, St. Johnsbury, South Burlington, Springfield and Williston. They respond to 45,000 emergency calls a year and cover an estimated 40 percent of the state’s population.
 
“Jim’s local government background really gives him a keen insight into our issues, and that’s important to us,” said Matt Vinci, a captain with the South Burlington Fire Dept. and president of the Professional Fire Fighters of Vermont. “His tireless advocacy of our issues in both the city council and state senate has shown us that he has truly been a friend to us and our issues.”
 
All candidates running for the office of Secretary of State were interviewed, but due to his long standing relationship and backing for Firefighters, Condos stood above the rest, noted Vinci.
  
The union’s membership will be working hard to campaign for Jim Condos for both the August 24thDemocratic Primary and the General Election in November. “We may not be the largest group of people, but we are extremely active and committed to the candidates we support” said Vinci. “We will be getting out into our communities to let voters know that we support Jim Condos.”

Jim Condos was a member of the South Burlington City Council from 1989-2007, including 8 years as Chairman, and also a State Senator from Chittenden County from 2001-2008.  He is a candidate for Vermont Secretary of State.
