HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Fire Department Retirees Association, announced today that the organization of more than 800 members is endorsing Governor Linda Lingle for Hawaii's open U.S. Senate seat.



"Governor Lingle has always fought to protect and support our jobs, our pensions and most importantly our families. At every level of government where she has served - Maui Councilwoman to Mayor to Governor - she always kept her promises," said the
organization's president, retired Fire Chief Donald Chang. "Hawaii needs the experience and determination of Governor Lingle to serve us well in Washington, especially now when promises made to seniors and retirees are in jeopardy," Chang added.



"I'm humbled and honored to be endorsed by the Honolulu Fire Department Retirees Association, a group of wonderful public servants I deeply respect. These individuals have dedicated their lives to public safety and it is now our turn to protect their
livelihood in retirement," said Governor Lingle.

The Honolulu Fire Department Retirees Association previously endorsed Governor Lingle in her gubernatorial campaign in 2002 and her re-election campaign in 2006.
