AFFI Executive Board
Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois
Chuck Sullivan was appointed as the President of the AFFI in January of 2020. He had previously served as the Central District Legislative Representative since 2008. Chuck has served in various Executive Board offices within his own Champaign Local 1260, and was also the AFFI 2nd District Political Education Committee Coordinator from 2004 to 2008. Sullivan was hired by CFD in 1995 and is a Captain.
Sullivan said he is “Honored and humbled by the opportunity to represent Illinois firefighters in Springfield. Our AFFI predecessors established an excellent reputation at the Capitol, our goal is to maintain it.” He feels the biggest challenge facing fire service labor is to, “Protect and improve on our pensions ensuring our members are able to enjoy a comfortable retirement after a long and rewarding career.”
He also believes it is “Vital to our continued success to have members at the local level working to elect individuals who understand the importance of our legislative agenda. Without Local participation, the AFFI does not function.”
