“It’s with great pleasure that Winthrop Firefighters Local 1070 announces its endorsement of Jeffrey Turco for State Representative,” said Eric Cusack, President, Winthrop Firefighters Local 1070. “We are excited for his leadership moving forward.”
“There is no candidate in this race with a clearer understanding of the sacrifices first responders make,” said Kevin O’Hara, President, Revere Firefighters Local 926. “Now more than ever, we need elected officials willing to stand up for those who work day and night to keep us safe. That is why Revere Firefighters Local 926 is proud to endorse Jeff Turco for State Representative.”

“I’m very grateful to have received the endorsement of both Firefighter unions in the 19th Suffolk District,” said Jeff Turco. “I will fight hard for public safety and to improve the quality of lives for the residents in the District, including those who selflessly protect our streets and keep us safe.”
