For­mer fire­fighter feels ef­forts un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated

The Compass - - EDITORIAL -

Please al­low me the space in your pa­per to ex­press my thanks and ap­pre­ci­a­tion to all the for­mer mem­bers of the Spa­niards Bay Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment.

Most have many years of ser­vice in the pro­tec­tion of the cit­i­zens and prop­erty, es­pe­cially for­mer Chief Hiscock, who has in­vested more time than any­one in run­ning the busi­ness of the depart­ment.

Th­ese facts seem to have been lost in the mess of events of late. While it’s true that most of the mem­bers re- signed their po­si­tions, we did so in sup­port of the Chief, who sup­ported for­mer li­ai­son coun­cil­lor Collins, who has al­legedly been the vic­tim of bul­ly­ing and ha­rass­ment.

Where is the thanks and ap­pre­ci­a­tion shown to the for­mer mem­bers for all their ef­forts? Where is the re­spect and ap­pre­ci­a­tion from our coun­cil? To date, I haven’t seen any.
