Ron Fleming for

Fort Myers Beach Fire Control District, Seat 2

To the Editor:

Carol Morris, Chairperson of the Fort Myers Beach Fire Commission, claims to be a mind reader. How else to explain that she knows what Ron Fleming, the candidate for Seat 2, is thinking? In her letter to the editor dated Oct. 14 (published in the Sand Paper) she writes, " he was quite upset since there was no doubt in his mind that he knows he was the best candidate and we the commissioners were stupid for not selecting him."

In an email from Mr. Fleming to Ms. Morris, which she selectively edited in her letter to the editor, he wrote, " I am very disappointed in your decision of last evening. I do not doubt the people chosen but I believe that you missed out". This doesn't add up with Ms. Morris' statement. She wrote "stupid" in describing herself and her fellow commissioners. Ron Fleming did not. To be transparent, Ms. Morris should release the entire email and not pick and choose what suits her.

Mr. Fleming is a career first responder with decades of executive leadership experience in an urban rust belt fire department. He is a graduate of the National Fire Academy Fellowship Program, holds a masters degree in Public Administration and has 10 years of financial experience as a board member and president of a $50 million credit union. Ron employs an inclusive leadership style that inspires consensus building, resulting with all team members striving to do their absolute best. He developed programs that have saved thousands of dollars in the public sector. He can do the same here. This is the type of candidate that I support. On Nov. 8 vote Ron Fleming for FMBFCD Seat 2.
