The Insite ran into Jeff Caynon. He was recently voted in as the new president of the Houston Firefighters Union local 341. Caynon has served as a fireman for the last 13 years of his life. He won the position after a run off with 67% of the vote. Caynon is the first African American every to become president of the union for Houston firefighters. The first responder says he felt like it was time for new leadership and a new direction for the organization. So after sitting on the board of the union for three years he threw his name in the hat. Caynon says his main focus will be collective bargaining. The firefighter’s current contract with the city will expire in December and he says he hopes to have a new contract in place before that time. Hey Jeff, thanks for dropping by The Insite!
