The Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois (AFFI) represents over 15,000 members in 224 affiliates across the state of Illinois including 34 affiliates in the Third Judicial District among them is the Canton Fire Department.

The AFFI is united in support of Justice Tom Kilbride’s retention in the upcoming general election.

AFFI leaders have determined that Justice Kilbride’s history as a union member along with his ability to ensure working families are treated fairly earned the endorsement of the organization.

"Justice Kilbride has a proven history of standing with working men and women and ensuring their worker injury protections are duly administered within the law. As firefighter/paramedics it is vitally important that we vote YES on the retention of Justice Kilbride," said Chuck Sullivan, President of the AFFI.
