Really are you ...

Promote from within, and hire a new fireman. Or hire someone from another county, repeat of the water department. How crazy was that? SMH.

earlduck

the firemen in dept do not want to be chief because they would have to take a big pay cut

Sorry earlduck, but your wrong. You may want to talk to the guys before you make a statement about something you apparently know nothing about.

Richard Cranium

Earlduck is partially right...they don't want the pay cut and they don't want the bs associated with the job.

Can someone please translate the previous comment from top dog.

Richard Cranium

Google Translate: "Sounds like top dog wanted the position in Willard and Doug got it instead."

Yeah, I gave up on the credibility of topdog a few weeks back. It is obvious that he/she has a vendetta for Coletta (I have no clue why)and he/she thinks that by typing b.s. on a reflector blog is going to assist him/her in his/her campaign to tarnish the reputation of a great guy. Sorry topdog, your words on here are useless and have no clout whatsoever to the people that matter most and your insinuating that Doug wasn't a good fit for the position is ridiculous. I also apologize because this will be the last time I ever read any of your comments or take them into consideration as having some type of credibility. You are a fool.
