The Sweeney Alliance Announces New Appointments to Their Board of Directors

Kerrville, Texas – Peggy Sweeney, founder and president of the Texas-based, non-profit company, the Sweeney Alliance, is pleased to announce the appointment of two new directors to its board of directors. The new appointees are Peter Billera of Firefighter Mortgages and Reverend Bill Minson of TUDAY Ministries.

Mr. Billera began serving his community as a volunteer firefighter with the Jericho (NY) Fire Department in 1987.  In 1992, he was hired by the Palm Beach County (FL) Fire-Rescue where he served as a career FF/Paramedic until he sustained a career ending injury.  In 1996, Peter began originating home loans for firefighters, first responders, and their family members.  It subsequently evolved into what is now Firefighter Mortgages where, along with some brother firefighters, he serves members of the public safety community nationwide.

Reverend Minson formed TUDAY Ministries in 1979 to motivate, inform and inspire youth. The last decade proved to be the cornerstone of TUDAY Ministries thirty-four year Gospel ministry of service. He served as a Red Cross and Salvation Army chaplain following the 9/11 attacks, and continues to provide spiritual care, counsel and advocacy support to 9/11, Oklahoma City and Katrina families. Bill produced and directed the documentary SAVE THE BRAVE on YouTube, which helped passage in the US Congress of the Zadroga Bill to assist sick and dying 9/11 Responders and their families.

“We strive to build a very strong leadership foundation, and couldn’t be more pleased with these appointments. Both of these individuals, with diverse experiences and backgrounds, have a passionate commitment to serving the needs of first responders and their families because they understand the many personal and professional struggles that today’s emergency service and public safety professionals must deal with. I am very honored to have Peter and Reverend Bill working with me and as members of our board of directors,” said Peggy Sweeney, founder and president.
