Vote Fleming for Fire District

To the Editor:

I support Ron Fleming for the fire commission board. The fire district commission needs some experienced professional input on the board. After attending some meetings it was obvious there is disconnect and lack of respect for the firefighters from the top of the commission. We have witnessed this from the hiring's and firings as well as the resignation of 14 firefighters in the last 2 years! These are the most important dedicated safety and rescue professionals that shouldn't be taken lightly. Their jobs require serious training and are sought after by career oriented professionals. I have a neighbor who is a fire Battalion Chief in Fort Myers that just rolled his eyes at the mention of the Beach district issues. There are plenty of important problem issues in the district the fire and rescue department shouldn't be one of them. We have an opportunity to elect Ron Fleming, an experienced retired first responder as a board member who will bring some professionalism and guidance to the commission.

Thank you,

Bob Bulifant
