Firefighters Union and Police Union City Council Endorsements

Two Public Service Unions Endorse Five Council Candidates
Bauters, Patz, Medina, Collins Engel Receive Nods

Two local public service unions have endorsed candidates for city council, the Emeryville Fire Department's Alameda County Firefighters Local 55 and the Emeryville Police Department's Officers Union (EPOA).  The firefighters have endorsed Christian Patz, John Bauters and Ally Medina while the police have endorsed John Bauters, Louise Engel and Brynnda Collins.  Both organizations selected the candidates by vote of the members.
Lieutenant Fred Dauer, a 'manager' at the police department and not in the union said of the political endorsements from Emeryville Police Officers Association, "The Police Department continues to serve the entire community, which includes residents, businesses and those visiting our City".


  1. The E'ville Eye editor guy only reported the police endorsement, not the firefighters endorsement. Why not?

    1. I assume this question is rhetorical. Rob is one of the easiest people to see through.
