Original post made on Oct 21, 2011

Come on Chuck, it has lost it flavor. People don't care. Get a life, thanks for running for office last time, many people don't have that courage. The past is the past. Get over it!

Silly,

If you're referring to Chuck Bernstein in your above post, he was not at last night's candidate forum. Apparently, you weren't either, or you would have known that he did not attend. Please stop misleading people by implying things that are not true.

Morale, low? I don't think this is an issue given the hours and compensation provided the fire fighters. Many have second jobs, perhaps that is adversely affecting their performance.

The candidates for Menlo Park Fire Protection District have recorded candidate statements at:
Web Link
For those who missed the forum, but would like a chance to see and hear the candidates up close, it's a great resource. There are also candidate statements for 3 other San Mateo County races and arguments for and against County Measure H.
