  • Barboursville, VA – ER Nurse Kellen Squire Endorsed by Professional Firefighters

    ER nurses work hand-in-hand with firefighters on the front line of EMS in the community. Kellen Squire (D-Barboursville) received an official endorsement for his candidacy in the 58th district from the Virginia Professional Fire Fighters (VPFF). Kellen is particularly proud to receive this endorsement as he knows firsthand what it takes to support fire and rescue workers. The endorsement letter stated: “The Virginia Professional Fire Fighters are dedicated to working with and helping to elect members of the House of Delegates who are committed to the belief that public safety, and especially issues that deal with Fire and EMS are a core service of Government.”

    There is no one more equipped with knowledge and understanding as how to help firefighters and EMS than an emergency room nurse. The endorsement letter further stated, “your views reflect the issues our members hold dear, and are important to keeping the citizens of the Commonwealth safe.” Kellen said about the endorsement: “Family is a focus of my campaign and that starts with having safe communities. First responders should be properly funded in every city, town, county, hill, and holler so that people know they are safe. I will work hard in the General Assembly to make sure our first responders have what they need to get the job done.”

    No surprise that Kelly wouldn’t tolerate Scaramucci. The old saying is true: “To err is human, to forgive Devine – neither of which is Marine Corps policy.”
