TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY FIREFIGHTERS BACK NICOLE GALLOWAY FOR MISSOURI GUV TODAY!!!



Powered by millions of sales tax revenue coming in very soon thanks to a recent coronavirus election win, Kansas City Fire Fighters continue flexing their political muscle and offering their support to this candidate.

Checkit:


Galloway for Governor Press Conference at Local 42

Brothers and Sisters,

Local 42 will be hosting Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway at our Union Hall on Monday, June 8th at 1100 hours for a campaign rally and press conference to announce our endorsement and support in her quest to become the next Governor of Missouri. It is time that we put our full efforts behind a candidate that, when elected, will be a strong, vocal advocate for the issues that are most important to the work we do as fire fighters and EMS professionals. Nicole Galloway has a long history of supporting labor and is steadfast in her belief that strong union membership is vital to creating a strong middle class and in turn a stronger Missouri. She believes that Union membership and the right to collectively bargain with your employer over wages, hours and working conditions is essential for all workers, including public sector workers such as ourselves; not only for the economic well-being of Missouri workers and families but also to ensure safer working conditions so that at the end of our shift we are able to go home to our families. Nicole is also a big proponent of expanding workforce development opportunities, like the apprenticeship programs in the unionized building and construction sector, that create pathways for our young folks to get the skills necessary for a career that they can be proud of and that will allow them to provide for their families.

We had some bipartisan support in the Missouri Legislature this session on a number of bills that would have benefitted Fire/EMS professionals. By advocating for these bills, Governor Parson could have been the catalyst to make sure Missouri’s fire fighters and EMS workers were better protected against deadly cancers and the rising incidence of PTS amongst our members, but he failed to deliver on the promises he made to us. He also showed a lack of leadership in securing vital PPE at the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, leaving our local departments scrambling to procure the equipment necessary to keep our members safe on the front lines. It is time we start working to get people elected who will advocate for our interests instead of wasting energy and treasury to simply maintain what few protections we still enjoy. I am confident that when elected, Nicole Galloway will be that advocate in Jefferson City for all IAFF members across the state as well as organized labor generally. To that end, I am asking for everybody who is not on duty on June 8th to make it a priority to come out for this event. Let’s all join together to show our support for Labor, for each other and for the next Governor of Missouri, Nicole Galloway.

Republicans don't really care about Parson. They might be better off having a governor they can villanize for the next four years.

FD shouldn't be campaigning with KC tax dollars.

3:44 not true at all, Parsons has been a very good governor and all republicans back him, did you get your info from the fake news networks?

^^^^yes he did

Nobody in the rest of the state of Missouri much care about firefighters in KC.
In fact, a fair number of Missouri residents of the metro don't either.
Parson will win in a landslide in November.
These folks are wasting their money.

In other words they want to rip off taxpayers even more and Galloway is their gal.

She also supports murdering babies in their mothers’ wombs. No thanks.

I'm not entirely opposed to another stretch of Dem govs. Why? Parson, and a large majority of the entrenched Republican's hopped right on board the destroy-our-State-economy-for-a-fake-boogeyman-train to show how socially woke they were hoping that democrats would like them, and say nice things about them. It's like Charlie Brown and the football, entrenched Republican pols fall for it every effin' time. Its embarrassing. Democrats hate, yes, literally hate you Parson and others. You thought if you destroyed our economy at their behest, they would like you. Oops, fooled again. Now our economy is fucked for several years, and the progs still hate you AND they now get to blame the wrecked economy on you, well 'cause you did it. Our State death toll to date is 92% of the expected death rate at this point in the year. Yes, progressives don't deal in numbers, its an anathema to groupthink. We have 8% less dead people than would be expected even with the specter of the boogeyman infecting and killing all who see it. If we had a Dem guv at least then the Repubs would have opposed the destruction rather than slathering about saying how great it is.

The "Heroes" of Local 42 are so damn greedy they put voters at risk last week trying to get an even greater share of the sales tax, which they had to have voted on amidst a pandemic. It's no surprise they side with the attractive blonde. That's their level of political sophistication.

The Republican party at all levels of government is a cancer in America. The GOP should be kicked out of office in 2020!! Shut the racist GOP down.

And the news here is??? I don't think the KCFD has ever endorsed a candidate that is not a Democrat. They take that whole "union friendly" thing pretty seriously.

Defund the Fire Department. We'll have social workers handle it.

Organized crime run unions always back the democrats. Keeping po folks po preserves the status quo. Voters were dumb enough to approve their tax that disproportionally hurts low income people.

^^^Yep, we sure did. Now stop crying like a bitch about it and pony up. How about that?

Does that Nicole gal put out? She looks like she’d be alright.

Springheel said...

Look closely at KCFD and the history of FDs in America. Bout the time the KC mafia began losing grip on kc, They moved into trying to establish themselves in a Union they felt that rhetoric would allow them beyond reproach. Remember the drunk Italian American fireman that rumbled with the off duty kc cop- while cowards stood about and virtue signaled their disapproval while the cop pleaded for help. He was being murdered, but recovered in time to send the dago to his grave. A little bit of bitching from the wops, but they ain't as shitbird as the groids, so they sucked it up and continued their influence in the Union. Look at it closely, it can be researched, and connections to shit means its closer to the asshole than the heart.

All of the sudden I don't care about firemen and their lives. And this is BS from the union. If the union tells them to run into a fire they would probably do it.

Absolutely anybody but Nicole

The main problem with Nicole is, her face bears a resemblance to that of an opossum. Look, and you can see it.

~Sighs~ All around~~~for the stupid endorsement AND for the stupid comment that wishes for firefighters to die. 6/8/20, 11:53 PM (and the like) if where you live catches fire then I hope you DON'T call 911 for their help~~~which is also what I said about AOC (and the like) calling for the defunding/elimination of defund police departments; if she calls I hope they don't show~~~but I bet BOTH of you would be hypocrites and call for their help if you thought you needed it and I hope that help doesn't show for either of you since you hate them so much.

Cops, Lawyers and (for some) Firefighters~~~hate them UNTIL YOU need them.

As for unions in general~~~funny how Dems are supposed to love unions but yet so many lately call for Police Unions be disbanded~~~ hypocrites!
