Omaha Professional Fire Fighters, IAFF Local 385, have endorsed Chuck Hassebrook for Governor.
“Omaha Fire Fighters chose to endorse Chuck Hassebrook because we’re confident that he will make public safety his number one priority. The men and women on the front lines of delivering emergency services need to know that Nebraska’ leader has their back. We know we can count on Chuck, and strongly believe he will make an excellent Governor,” said IAFF President Steve LeClair.
Chuck Hassebrook said, “I deeply appreciate the support of the men and women that protect our lives and property. I am honored to stand with them.”
Yesterday, Hassebrook also received the support of the Omaha Police Officers Association (OPOA) and the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police, representing more than 750 peace officers in Omaha and hundreds more across the state.
IAFF Local 385 represents 634 fire fighters and paramedics in the City of Omaha.
Hassebrook has also received the support of former Omaha and Lincoln Mayors, fourteen state Senators, the AFL-CIO, and Nebraska State Education Association (NSEA), along with early support from Dick Holland, Susie Buffett, and Warren Buffett.
Hassebrook served on the University of Nebraska Board Of Regents for 18 years, and spent 36 years working for rural communities at the Center for Rural Affairs, a national rural advocacy and development organization based in Lyons, where he has assisted over 10,000 rural Nebraska small businesses.
