"While serving on the Boca Raton City Council, Bill Hager was a staunch supporter of fire rescue and emergency medical services, and made public safety a top priority," stated John Luca, President Firefighters and Paramedics of Boca Raton, Local 1560. "We are proud to endorse him."
"Bill Hager has demonstrated his commitment to our community, is a conscientious public servant, and will be a great addition to the Florida legislature," said Battalion Chief Ron Beesley, Legislative Director of the Florida Professional Firefighters. "As a state legislator Mr. Hager will have an even greater impact on pubic safety."
