Its too bad that the firefighters got caught in the middle of this battle between some of you and local government. The needs didn't go away tonight and you may second guess your decision the next time you need emergency services.
Nearly 70% of Cole County households include someone who works for state government - I think I will protest YOUR retirement plans and long list of paid holidays while these guys miss Christmas and all the other holidays to make sure your households are safe.
Enjoy your desk jobs, because firefighters retire with damaged backs, knees, shoulders hips and lungs. The stress, 58 hour work week and often second jobs lead to a 75% divorce rate.
Be sure you take your frustration out on the people YOU elected, not the men and women who might possibly save your life.
