For Immediate Release: Thursday, June 21, 2012
BOSTON Tomorrow, Senator John Kerry will visit Fall River to award a $14,453,524 federal grant to the Fall River Fire Department. The new Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant will prevent two fire stations from closing and save 79 firefighter jobs that would have been lost due to local budget cuts.
Mayor Flanagan, Chief Silvia, and I went full force on this effort because we knew it meant the real difference between saving 79 firefighter jobs and protecting this city or laying off these brave first responders and telling Fall River theyd have to go it alone, said Sen. Kerry. FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security heard us loud and clear, and Im thrilled to be able to come to Fall River and personally deliver on this all-hands-on-deck effort to save critical jobs that protect this city and save lives.

Kerry; First treason; Now bribery.
Somewhere there is a jail cell waiting of its future occupant, John Fucking Kerry.
So we, the hard working taxpayers of the United States have to bailout a local government in Massachusetts because they mismanaged their financial affairs to the point where they can’t provide for basic services. Unreal!
Did he finally pay his boat tax?
Wait til Baraq starts letting Calif, Ill, and NY issue state bonds guaranteed by the FedGov.
$182,956 per job.
I Don’t Know, But I Remember That He Did Serve In Vietnam.
Good money,if you can get it.
So, they pay for the fat pensions and bennies and claim it’s to “save” a Fire Department.
John Kerry is a national disgrace.
Did you know John Kerry served in Vietnam?
...And should have been kicked out of the Navy.
Wait. I believe he was. How convenient Carter’s discharge upgrade program came about at just the right time for J Effing K.
Has he ever released his full military record? No. Why not?
who’s going to pay them next year?
