City Commission Race: Amyx, Farmer & Riordan elected with support of IAFF Local 1596
Updated On: Jul 09, 2013
All three City Commission candidates endorsed by Local 1596 were elected to office on April 2, 2013.
This is a major accomplishment for Local 1596. In addition to print and online ads, over a dozen of our members spent a week canvassing neighborhoods and distributing flyers that endorsed these three candidates.
This work undoubtedly paid off, as Dr. Riordan won election by less than 100 votes. Local 1596 members should be very proud of our ability to successfully support candidates who support public safety.
Thanks to everyone who came together to make this effort a success. We look forward to working with the new City Commission to address the needs of Lawrence in the upcoming term.
