Congratulations to Chief Ghiorso, one of the real ones who, along with his board, showed our community the benefits of the borderless response system and advocates for it on behalf of all County residents.

Thank you for watching over and serving our community, even though it's not officially yours, and sending us your fire trucks and ambulances when they are close. It's been a pleasure and refreshing departure to watch how you and your board serve not only Woodside and Portola Valley but the other areas of San Mateo County as well.

We hope your board and the new Chief continue your broad approach of caring not only for your fine residents, but your neighbors as well.
