UFLAC and Pat McOsker endorse Joe Buscaino for CD 15

 Joe Buscaino Campaign's brilliant counter-endorsement by UFLAC and its President Pat McOsker. 
Pat McOsker and UFLAC picked their moment to stick it to Mayor Antonio Villar and his CD 15 Candidate Assemblyman Warren Furutani. Thus, crashing the LA County Labor Federation Endorsement momentum for Furutani in CD 15.
After getting dished by Mayor Antonio Villar over cutbacks to firefighters and resources, the rank and file of UFLAC and their leader Pat McOsker inflicted a timely and potentially lethal counter blow to Mayor Villar's chosen candidate in CD 15 Assemblyman Warren Furutani, by endorsing LAPD Senior Lead Officer Joe Buscaino for the CD 15 Special Election Runoff. Thus, countering the County Labor Federation endorsement of Furutani last evening, statement follows.
(San Pedro) -- LAPD officer and L.A. City Council District 15 candidate Joe Buscaino was endorsed today by the United Firefighters of Los Angeles City (UFLAC), IAFF Local 112, and by the organization’s current president, and former primary opponent, Pat McOsker. “I am honored to be endorsed by Pat and his fellow firefighters,” said Buscaino.  “As a police officer, it means a great deal to me to have the support of the men and women who serve and protect the people of Los Angeles.” Buscaino continued, "The McOsker family has deep ties to and is well respected throughout Council District 15. I am proud to have earned this important endorsement." “Joe Buscaino is a proven public servant and an excellent candidate for the working men and women of Council District 15,” said McOsker, President of UFLAC.  “We are proud to support Joe for the run-off election.” Following the UFLAC endorsement, McOsker chose to personally endorse Buscaino as well.  Buscaino has also been endorsed by former opponents Gordon Teuber and Jayme Wilson. 

Buscaino, in an interview with Mayor Sam, had pledged that any possible cuts to LAPD and LAFD would be off the table if he were elected to City Hall. That resonated with PPL and now UFLAC.
