Led “Largest Local” in the IAFF That’s what they called the IAFF’s 3rd district under Mullane’s leadership and that’s the way he ran it.

IAFF: The Chief of Staff Crisis

Entry Img

Who’s Next? It’s been about a month since IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger fired long-time chief of staff Pete Gorman.

Ole’ Joe Just last week IAFF Vice President Sandy McGhee was quoted in a New York Times piece revealing that the long-contemplated  Hillary Clinton endorsement was, in fact, stillborn.
