Firefighters Groups Endorse Williams for Assembly

The Santa Barbara candidate picks up the support of the California and Ventura County firefighters associations

Das Williams, candidate for the Assembly District 35 seat, announced Monday that his campaign has been endorsed by the California Professional Firefighters and the Ventura County Professional Firefighters Association.

CPF represents more than 30,000 rank-and-file firefighters and more than 180 affiliates statewide. VCPFA represents all firefighters in the Ventura County Fire Protection District, and the Santa Paula City Fire Department through the rank of captain.

“Das Williams has a long and proven record of supporting those working on the front lines of public safety,” CPF President Lou Paulson said. “Throughout his tenure on the Santa Barbara City Council, Das has shown a unique understanding and concern for the issues firefighters face every day. Das Williams will be a great representative for this Assembly district and we’re proud to support him.”

CPF and VCPFA join both the Santa Barbara city and county firefighters associations, and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection firefighters in supporting Williams for the Assembly seat.

“I am honored to have earned the support of our state’s firefighters,” Williams said. “The service they provide to our communities each and every day is truly invaluable, and I will do whatever it takes to continue to support their work and mission in the Assembly.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
