"On behalf of the 1,180 members of the Orange County Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 2057, it is my pleasure to present you this official letter of endorsement for your candidacy for Mayor of Apopka. We are interested in seeing your vision be applied to the citizens of Apopka. We hope that our endorsement will be the beginning of a successful campaign and positive working relationship with our fellow brothers and sisters of the Apopka Professional Firefighters."
Becker was pleased to receive the third endorsement from a professional firefighting association.
“I am very excited to say our campaign has the endorsement of the Apopka, Orlando and now Orange County Fire Fighters Associations," Becker said. "These are endorsements by groups of men and women who residents trust with their lives, and I’m honored they are supportive of my vision for our department and our city.”
