Dear Colleagues,
Tomorrow the voters will decide whom they wish to serve them on the Fire Board for the next four years. Regardless of the outcome I want to personally thank each of you for being willing to step before the voters and to offer them your time and effort. I am also pleased that this year's campaign has been conducted in a positive manner by all of the candidates.

Democracy only works when citizens offer to serve and everyone participates in the election process.

Peter
