I'm a huge Rusty Day supporter. I haven't met anyone who knows more about fire science than he does (everyone should read his book). At the same time, he's a huge big picture thinker. We really need people like him on Boards like WFPD...the lack of comment on the Stanford Wedge by the WFPD, the lack of education plans and the serious foot dragging relative to updating our fire zoning maps is pathetic. Don't be surprised if we get more of the same by reelecting those in office now. DOH. Designing and building a new firehouse without even admitting what we are up against in the district is so short-sighted.

Also, I'd just like to point out that PVNU is not an "outside group" as Miller contends! It's literally a blog written by Portola Valley residents. Why are so many incumbents afraid of resident voices? And why don't Almanac reporters fact check or at least ask some questions about current fire issues that the WFPD Board should be handling?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
