Citizens of Fishers, you are being used by the Firemen in the recent election, they didn’t care one bit about the quality of the candidates, about the position of the candidate relative to the long term good for the community. They cared only about one thing, which candidates would support a pay raise for them, which candidates would provide money.
One of the questions that was asked in the endorsement process was exactly that, if they would support a pay raise next year. Endorsements were based on these simple factors.
To make matter worst they imported help to man the polling places on primary day. Why did we have firemen from Carmel and Cicero handing out their endorsement papers to citizens of Fishers. I overheard one fireman when he came to do his turn at the poll say to the one who was leaving “How is our pay raise coming.?”
The end result is that we no longer should pay any attention to the fire union and who they endorse. They have proven they are just another union looking out for their members only and working to elect candidate who have promised payback for the endorsement. Not for the community they serve.
Fisher Fire Union and firemen shame on you.
