"I am honored to receive this endorsement," said Rose. "As the State Representative for District 48, I will work hard to ensure our fire departments and first responders have the resources they need to do their jobs safely and effectively. I join in with the rest of the River Valley in thanking our firefighters for the critical work they do each and every day in our communities, especially during this pandemic. I look forward to continuing to work with my friends in our fire departments to protect families in Arkansas."
Several firefighters and members of the Local #4078 met with Rose this week. During the meeting, Rose discussed a wide array of important issues facing residents and first responders across the Arkansas River Valley.
