Vote for Boylan on fire board, for fresh thinking

By October 26, 2010

EDITOR:

This Nov. 2 election you will vote to fill two positions on the Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District Board of Directors. One of your votes should go for Dr. Richard Boylan.

Richard lives in Diamond Springs and cares about the Diamond Springs-El Dorado community deeply.

He is the only candidate who is not an incumbent. The Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Board needs fresh thinking, and a new broom sweeps clean.

In these tough financial times, he will look for cost savings and revenue enhancements to assure that the fire district has what it needs to do a great job without any waste. He will go over the district budget line by line to eliminate frills while protecting essentials.

Boylan will make sure that our firefighters, EMTs and paramedics are qualified and trained professionals, and receive pay that is reasonable.

He will defend the Diamond Springs-El Dorado Fire Protection District against budget raids by unscrupulous local politicians, and make sure our fire departments have the resources to roll out quickly to suppress fires and save lives.

Richard will continue to meet and talk with our local community to address situations before they become serious problems.

And he will continue to talk to firefighters and fire chiefs to encourage board-fire staff dialog and mutual understanding so we can all work together as a team.

When you vote, make your vote for Richard Boylan for Diamond Springs-EI Dorado Fire Protection District Board.

GEORGE and JOAN AMO

Placerville
