Michigan Professional Firefighters Union endorsed John Cherry in his run for State Representative in the
49th District. The district includes the cities of Mt. Morris, Flushing and Swartz Creek, a portion of the City of Flint,
and all of Flint Township and Mt. Morris Township.

Mark Docherty, President of Firefighters Union, knows that John Cherry will fight to protect firefighters’
safety and their rights in the Michigan Legislature. Each term there are a number of bills introduced to
support our firefighters and they fail to even get a hearing in committee. John Cherry will work to get
those bills taken up in committee and passed through the legislature.

“Protecting the lives and health of the men and women who protect us each day is important to each of
us. So often revenue sharing dollars to our local communities isn’t enough to maintain firefighting
equipment and pay these dedicated public servants a decent wage. This needs to change,’ said John
Cherry.
