The DeKalb Firefighter's Association is endorsing candidates for county mayor and the county commission in the local Democratic Primary on May 6th.
The endorsements are the result of candidate responses to surveys recently published by the Association. "A few weeks ago the DeKalb Firefighters’ Association mailed a public safety survey to all candidates running in the May Democratic Primary Election for the offices of County Mayor and County Commission. This survey contained questions pertaining to public safety in DeKalb County", according to the Association.
"Candidates had until March 15 to return their surveys". According to the Association, "All of the following candidates who returned their surveys have met approval for endorsement in the May 2014 Democratic Primary Election
