If you have watched any of the recent Fire Board meetings you have seen how difficult Board President Jones’ challenge is as he tries to get the current board to do its job. The other four directors are engaged in a bizarre combination of childish behavior towards one another and micromanagement of things about which they have no competence. Critical programs have stalled for months and the Chief and the staff sit in bewilderment as the board refuses to do its job.
The seats of two of the directors, Kiraly and Silano, are up for election in November. They are no longer serving the best interests of either the community or the Fire District.
I urge Kiraly and Silano not to run for reelection
The residents of the Fire District would be better served by two new directors who have sound management experience, no greater political aspirations and who will join with Director Jones to provide the quality of oversight and direction which the citizens expect and the Fire District staff deserve.
