(Corona, CA) – Eric Linder has gained the endorsement of the Riverside City Firefighters  Association, which praised Eric for his record of standing up for his community and supporting public safety.

The Riverside City Firefighters Association is comprised of the active safety members of the City of Riverside Fire Department that are on duty 24 hours a day responding to emergencies and fires. Formed in 1926, the RCFA has been committed to not only serving the members of the association and their families, but also the community at large.

The Linder campaign has now received the support of a majority of the public safety associations in the district, including the Riverside Sheriffs’ Association, the Corona Firefighters Association and the Corona Police Officers Association.

“Riverside County needs a representative like Eric Linder who is committed to public safety, and has record of bringing people together to get things done for our community,” said Timothy Strack, President, Riverside City Firefighters Association.

“I am humbled by the outpouring of support from the men and women that risk their lives everyday to protect our families.  I look forward to working with the Riverside City Firefighters Association to put our residents first,” stated Eric Linder.

Linder has a strong record of leadership in his community.  Before being elected to the State Assembly, he co-founded the Corona Taxpayers Association. As a member of the State Assembly, Eric Linder made public safety a top priority by fighting for adequate funding for law enforcement and championing measures to help give these professionals the tools they need. He has authored legislation to enact tougher penalties on sex offenders and ensure that truly dangerous criminals are not released early due to overcrowding.  In 2014, Crime Victims United of California named Eric Linder Legislator of the Year for leading the fight to hold organizations that have turned a blind eye to sexual abuse accountable.
