  1. What a poor voter turn out how ever you look at it. What a waste of money by the district to get to this point. Hopefully this waste is over. Could have kept a station open for what these last elections cost.

    • The waste is even more because they are violating the voters rights act by not having District’s or wards to fairly represent the voters. They knew this too. All said, a voted in board will be a refreshing positive new start for the troubled district.

  2. Get the new people in before they creat more Administrators. Already 1 new Battalion Chief and 1 New Buisness Manager. Why not more firefighters
