  2. As a frum fire fighter I want to say:
    1) The increased budget as mentioned here is $27.60 per year, support your volunteers.
    2) As much as I despised Larry last time around I think he is the right choice now.

    1. There are plenty of volunteer Firefighters and more waiting to join. The paid FF's are not letting the volees get the calls which leaves the volls with no motivation. We need to change what is going on there and increase the voll pool. Taxes are way too much to give them free spending.

  10. Not for toys. It's equipment that we need. But please vote down the budget. All the volunteers will quit and the taxes will go up four fold.
