State Rep. Cavaletto has been tapped as co-chair for the Illinois Legislative “Fire Caucus” in the 100th General Assembly. A bi-partisan group, the Fire Caucus works with the Illinois Fire Services Association made up of 13 fire service organizations with 42,000 members across the state.
“Through this ‘Fire Caucus’ partnership,” explained Rep. Cavaletto, “we join with fire chiefs from around the state to promote good public policy that impacts not only fire protection for Illinois residents, but also impacts the working conditions for our firefighters.”
Cavaletto has been on the caucus since he was first elected. “It’s a great organization with a lot great people in it all the way from Cairo”, said Cavaletto, “and you meet of real firemen, volunteers, and a lot of great people who do a great service to their community.” Cavaletto has served on the caucus as treasurer for the past five years.
