Should fire board candidates accept financial or other support from firefighters union? Restricted to registered users

Original post made by Peter Carpenter, Atherton: Lindenwood, on Aug 3, 2013

I urge all of the candidates to decline to be interviewed by the firefighters' union and to refuse to accept either endorsement or any type of financial support from the union. The responsibility of a Fire Board Director is to the citizens of the Fire District not to the union. The Fire Board will be called upon to ratify a new union agreement and in doing so there should be no question about the Board's responsibility to the citizens who elected them.
