Providence Fire Fighters IAFF, Local 799
We are pleased to inform the public that the Providence Fire Fighters IAFF Local 799 is proud to enthusiastically endorse John Goncalves for Providence City Council in Ward 1.
The Providence Fire Fighters IAFF believes in electing and reelecting candidates who demonstrate an understanding of the challenges and needs facing firefighters and those who also recognize the important work that our profession does for the public safety in the Providence community.
John has been a Ward 1 and Providence resident for over 25 years and an important advocate for bringing the city together as one of the founders of the Providence Coalition of Neighborhood Associations, an organization that brought together 19 neighborhood associations across the city to tackle city-wide issues. His policy experience. including roles as Chair of the Minnesota Senate District 60 Committee, Administrative Director, Strategy Director, Policy Aide/Advisor in key city council, mayoral, attorney general, and Senate races, will make him an asset on the Council. As a Brown University alum, native Providence resident, and staunch community and public safety advocate, John is the perfect voice to represent Ward 1 which encompasses Fox Point as well as the East Side neighborhoods of College Hill, Wayland Square. the Jewelry District and Downtown Providence.
We look forward to working with John. Congratulations on receiving our support!
