Democratic Queens district attorney hopeful Melinda Katz on Wednesday was endorsed by the Uniformed Fire Officers Association as one of her rivals, Tiffany Cabán, was endorsed by the organization that grew out of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s 2016 presidential camapign.

“Firefighters and first responders depend on leaders who will ensure they have the resources necessary to do their jobs safely and effectively. The men and women of the UFOA are exemplary public servants who put their health and safety at risk to protect our community,” Katz said. “The safety of emergency responders should be a top priority for the District Attorney. I’m honored to have the support of the UFOA, and as the next DA I’ll always defend their right to organize and I’ll partner with their members on new initiatives to keep firefighters safe on the job.”

Katz, the Queens borough president, faces Cabán, Councilman Rory Lancman and Judge Greg Lasak in the June Democratic primary.

Cabán has received the backing of range of progressive grassroots groups in recent weeks.

“I am thrilled to receive an endorsement from Our Revolution as we work to bring transformative justice to Queens,” she said. “Our Revolution knows that in order to win local races, campaigns need to build diverse and activated coalitions of voters. Their approach to movement- and revolution-building has been an inspiration to our campaign, and I am proud to have their support as we fight for a Queens DA’s office that empowers and protects our communities.”
