At a forum for mayoral hopefuls there on Sunday, community members arrived with a question: What would the candidates do to beef up emergency operations and bring down response times?

  1. Many residents and maybe some 29 councilmen have read about the fire that killed 80 people and injured 200. It been all over the news today and internet. That should leave an indelible impression on everyone (last week 29 had two fires within 20-some minutes of each other).
    How do we prevent that from happening here? City councilmen needs to rethink their filibuster in refusing to fund the fire department. Now that CASINO is going to be build in city limits, the need for a fire department at its present level is more important than every.

    The weird highway of live is often pretty predictable; those local decision makers whom continue to hedge and play the subterfuge game on public safety ought to rethink any plan of running for reelection.
