Toledo mayoral candidate Wade Kapszukiewicz has been endorsed by the Toledo Firefighters Union, Local 92.
The announcement was made at a news conference Monday at the union's downtown headquarters.
"The men and women in uniform are on the front lines working hard for all of us every day," Kapszukiewicz said. "In turn, I look forward to working with them to build a better Toledo."
"Our members voted to endorse Wade because they believe in what he stands for," said Ian Downing, president of the union's political action commmittee. "They believe he is the best hope for the future success of Toledo and support him 100%."
