Denton City Council At-Large Place 6 incumbent Paul Meltzer has received the endorsement of the Denton Fire Fighters Association.
Meltzer is the only candidate the Fire Fighters Association is endorsing in the Nov. 3 election, according to a news release, with a $500 check from the Firefighters PAC coming with the endorsement. Meltzer has said he is not accepting PAC money in his race against Jim Mann, so he endorsed the check over to the Muscular Dystrophy Association as a contribution to the firefighters’ charitable fundraising effort.
Meltzer was elected in 2018. He is a retired product developer who is running against Mann, pastor of New Life Church of Denton.
