Rural residents, as a firefighter, I’m asking you to vote for Gray Ottley for fire commissioner.
The citizens overwhelmingly supported consolidation and the current commissioners are not moving towards consolidation in any way. In fact, they’ve dropped it entirely. They appeared to want to move that way when they requested a better plan from a committee of firefighters to replace the failed contract-for-services plan proposed earlier this year. However, after hearing an exceptional plan that was widely endorsed by stakeholders, the current commissioners did absolutely nothing; refusing to even return phone calls from the committee chair.
Ottley has real firefighting experience and will move forward with consolidation with the energy and drive our citizens deserve. Vote Ottley.
