I am seeking your support for a position on our union as a board member. First I would like to thank Grant Stephens and Cameron Cerwin for their time and dedication to our membership. For the last 12 years I have been reaping the benefits of what our union has accomplished on our behalf. It is now time that I step up and give back. We are in a new time in our department that I am very excited about. I feel that under the new administrative leadership and proactive union leadership we can continue to make our department great. All of us have pride in our work and where we work, so let’s keep going in the right direction and make the BFD the best place to work. This is a critical time for us to shape the BFD for the future.
