Brentwood Press: Wages and Retirement in the Fire District

A great article worthy of a read for those who want real information on firefighter wages and retirement. There have been some Letters to the Editor recently by a former journalist which stated various false statements. Rick Lemyre piece did a great community justice to correct much misinformation.

Another worthy read was the editorial by Kevin Romick on the Fire Service Model:

Guest comment: Maintain current fire service model
by Kevin Romick, Mayor of Oakley

Recently there have been editorials, letters to the editor and blog posting against Measure S. One of the arguments against Measure S is that the fire district is too top heavy. A claim, much like the rest, that is not supported with any information, just a blanket statement.
