International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) endorses Phoenix Vice Mayor Yassamin Ansari for Congressional District 3

[Phoenix, October 19, 2023] – Phoenix Vice Mayor and Congressional Candidate Yassamin Ansari has earned the endorsement of the International Association of Fire Fighters for the Democratic Primary in Arizona’s 3rd Congressional District.

“The IAFF and its local brothers and sisters in Arizona felt compelled to come out early and show our strong support for Phoenix Vice Mayor Yassamin Ansari and her bid for Congressional District 3,” IAFF District President Stephen Gilman said. “We see this as a reflection of her unwavering commitment to firefighters over the years. When it comes to public safety, she’s championed raising wages for firefighters and investing in critical infrastructure to improve response times — and protect first responders on the job and beyond. We’re certain that when she’s elected to Congress, she’ll continue to be our champion and prioritize keeping our communities safe.”

Vice Mayor Ansari said, “I’m incredibly proud to be endorsed by the IAFF. Earning their support is an incredible milestone for our campaign and truly means the world to me. As Phoenix and Glendale continue to grow, I’ll always stand with our first responders to keep our families, schools and communities safe.

Firefighters selflessly choose a career path that puts the public first. In Congress, I will work to ensure that we prioritize their health and safety too. From access to quality healthcare, to pushing legislation to end firefighter cancer, I intend to champion and pass policy that improves the quality of life for our brave firefighters who sacrifice so much for the community,” Ansari continued.



Yassamin will never put big funders ahead of working families. That’s why she refuses to accept corporate PAC money. Help fuel our campaign.
