Re: CPF 4th District Vice President
Earlier this month, following Brother Jeff DelBono's resignation from the CPF Executive Board, a special election nomination process for the position of CPF 4th District Vice President was officially opened.
Today, following the close of the nomination process, there was an uncontested race and I’m pleased to announce that Vince Wells, president of United Professional Firefighters of Contra Costa County, Local 1230 is the winner by acclamation and will be the new 4th District Vice President for California Professional Firefighters.
An Air Force veteran with more than 20 years in the fire service, Vince has served the past decade as Local 1230 president. In that role, he represents members from five different agencies, and he's been an active and engaged participant in local and state fights on behalf of firefighters and all working people.
On behalf of the other members of the CPF Executive Board, I welcome Vince to his new role as CPF 4th District Vice President.
