The Texas State Association of Firefighters

Endorses Rep. Ryan Guillen's Re-Election Campaign


AUSTIN - The Texas State Association of Firefighters (TSAFF) has endorsed the re-election campaign of Representative Ryan Guillen (D- Rural South Texas) in support of his strong legislative record and consistent devotion to first responders and their families.

"It is a privilege to work alongside the TSAFF and I will continue to fight and advocate for the shared interests of all firefighters and first responders," said Guillen.


Guillen is truly grateful for the work that first responders do for our communities. He has been an advocate and ally on numerous occasions when it comes to securing the interests of firefighters across Texas. In the past legislative session, he was an author of HB 357, which authorized free pre-K for children whose parents were first responders that have been killed or injured in the line of duty.  He also was a sponsor of SB 15, which entitled the surviving spouse of a first responder who fell in the line of duty to a property tax exemption for the entire value of their home.

"I am honored to receive an endorsement from the Texas State Association of Firefighters," said Guillen. "Throughout my time in office, I have worked hard to improve the lives of first responders who selflessly serve our communities and provide the necessary services that are vital to the lives of many Texans."

The TSAFF is a membership organization for professional and career firefighters with the objective to unify all Texas Professional Firefighters and promote their shared interest, pass legislation of their behalf and provide necessary services to local members.

Serving ten rural South Texas counties in the Texas House of Representatives, Ryan Guillen is known for his hard work, fierce independence, and relentless efforts for South Texas families. Recently, Capitol Inside called him a “House Bill Machine,” and a “one-person assembly line for legislation.” Since elected, few other legislators have passed more bills than Guillen.
