Count one more organization confused about how the District’s first elected attorney general fits into city politics. The union that represents D.C. Fire and EMS personnel will be sitting out the attorney general’s race, according to union president Ed Smith.

“We don’t fully understand the role of the attorney general’s role in labor yet,” Smith says.

The International Association of Fire Fighters Local 36 will be participating in the race for two D.C. Council at-large seats, though. Along with sticking with their endorsement of incumbent Democratic Councilmember Anita Bonds from the primary, the union endorsed independent candidate Elissa Silverman today for the other seat.
