Chief more interested in food, than safety

Editor:

The battle for new leadership at the fire department continues even after voters expressed their displeasure by rejecting the fire levy renewal.

Now they apparently believe that the safety committee can fix everything. Wrong, the chief doesn’t even go to the meetings. How many meetings can he miss?

The excuse for his absence at the Dec. 4 safety committee meeting was that he was working. What are we paying him $450 per month for? If he can’t make meetings, then he needs to resign.

Another Safety Committee meeting was set for Thursday, Dec. 13, to discuss fire department issues. Our fire chief is off on Thursdays, but he still might not be at the meeting because he likes to eat out with his wife on Thursday.

Apparently his stomach is more important to him than our safety.
