WILTON, Conn. – The Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association (UPFFA) have endorsed Democratic candidate Keith Rodgerson in his run for state Representative in the 143rd District, which encompasses parts of Norwalk, Westport, and Wilton.

“This action is taken after careful consideration of your support for professional firefighters of the State of Connecticut and your commitment to helping to insure the health and safety of our brothers and sisters throughout the state,” stated Peter S. Cardozza Jr., president of UPFFA, in a Monday press release. “We are proud of our association with you and look forward to our continuing partnership.”

Rodgerson thanked the UPFFA for their support in this upcoming election.

“Public safety is of great importance to me. I am thankful for this validation from all our first responders. I come from a family of Connecticut policemen and firemen. We must always ensure that those who protect us in our greatest time of need are given the support they need. They put their safety on the line for us every day, so we must always look out for them in these uncertain and challenging times.”
