City employees deserve an official voice in their healthcare and a seat at the table when these critical decisions are made.
Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Durham, & Winston-Salem are the 5 largest cities in NC, represent our peers in size & services, and our competition for development and talent. Our pay should match an average of the pay in our 4 peer cities.
Civil service boards have been utilized in the United States since 1871. The original intent of such boards was to curb political favoritism, combat nepotism, and generally combat "good-ol'-boy" networks.
Fire Fighters for Responsible Government (FFRG) is the political action committee fund of the Professional Fire Fighters of Greensboro - IAFF Local 947.
FFRG's mission is to educate members of the Greensboro City Council and NC General Assembly about job-related issues important to Greensboro firefighters, our families, and our community. It is our job as a union to evaluate and support candidates that stand with us on the issues that directly impact us as firefighters and indirectly impact our community through our ability to maintain a safe and effective response force.
You can help us make an impact in the lives of the citizens of Greensboro and our Fire Fighters by financially supporting our efforts.
