    Well, I guess if you have a certain magic 8 ball you can find anything. I couldn’t find them,(and still can’t on the website…..what kind of a “Where’s Waldo” puzzle is going on here?)

    Just reading the Herald writeups on council hopefuls.
    Dave Filipuzzi says he thinks there should be some restitution for firemen that were quote let go.
    Oh no, my goodness. They were not let go, they quit.
    NOT

    6:17, this is NOT in defense of Dave Fillipuzzi but rather to get facts straight; the CNP volunteer firemen were let go. Some handed in their pagers in mass protest for firing a volunteer chief ‘on strike’ in support of the Chief, and demanded he be reinstated or they would not respond to calls until a resolution was found. Then the municipality responded by sending ALL of the guys (with exception of a very few) letters stating ‘thank you for your service but you are no longer needed.’ They had no idea who’s pagers were handed in in protest and who hadn’t but guys that didn’t hand in pagers were sent the same letter anyways. Hope this clears up the confusion.

    Let’s say a dinner to say Thank You to all of the ex volunteers fire fighters who were active when the Mayor started his Fire Department revamp is a restitution. The dimmer would be put on by volunteers and paid for by donations. That would be a good start to getting things back on track in the Pass.

    Dave Filipuzzi has nothing to apologize for. He recognizes the input of the fire fighters, which is way more than our present mayor. More power to him for running and I’d pick him any day over some of the yahoos that we have in office now.

    Lots more important issues than the poor ex firemen that quit.

    Mostly, finances, which affects e v e r y b o d y.

    1:10 “Mostly finances which affects everybody.” I don’t understand your reasoning? What affects our finances more than having volunteer fireman for free and now we have to pay for them? Which school did you go to? Hopefully not the one Brucy went to.

    We paid the volunteer firemen. How many times must we go over the same thing? They were PAID volunteers.
    Did you even go to school?

    It’s all about restoring volunteerism which one mayoral candidate has mentioned as a platform item. The area revolves and survives on volunteers and it has to be restored. Just happens that the ex fire department volunteers and their friends and family did a lot of volunteering along with many other people. This part is as important as restoring fiscal responsibility. It’s all a package.

    Yes, volunteerism is one of several important things for sure. Did the firemen quit volunteering for things when they quit? Or were they still part of the community. If I was a true volunteer I would do it no matter what.

    Anon 6:09 AM Sept 18– I’m sure some of the firemen, family and friends left the volunteer game and I don’t blame them. Some of their volunteer activities dovetailed with the job they did. It’s not for us to judge them if they did or did not continue to volunteer- that is what the word means- volunteer.

    As for being a true volunteer, we have seen where this has gotten us over the past three years. The spirit is gone in large part. Let’s hope this changes after the election when new faces grace the mayor/council chamber.

    Anon 5.53 yes they were PAID volunteers and they cost way less than the CLOWN show we have now so that is a financial item that affects all residents. Wont even get into the equipment that was sold at a loss because the present PAID people couldn’t drive standard transmissions DUH, high level of competence there.
