Fire fighters and law enforcement officials put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe. I am proud to stand with them and work to ensure that they have the resources they need through the Assistance to Firefighter Grant Program, the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Firefighters Program, and the COPS Hiring Recovery Program. I will continue to be a strong advocate for these brave men and women, and I thank them for their support.
These hardworking men and women support the defense and well-being of our nation, which is why I have consistently opposed efforts to reduce their wages, benefits, and hours. If we are to recruit and retain the best civil service in the world, we must ensure they have fair pay and benefits. I thank AFGE, AFSCME, NAGE, and NTEU for their support, and I will continue to partner with them to advocate for our federal workforce.
I am honored to receive the endorsements of the National Education Association, the Maryland State Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers, and AFT Maryland.

I was proud to cast my ballot today for Hillary Clinton. Secretary Clinton is extraordinarily able and has shown how strong, steady, and substantive she is throughout this campaign.
