A Golder Ranch Fire District (GFRD) fireman lives in my neighborhood.
He's a supporter of Hiremath, Hornat, and Waters. His yard is cluttered with signs. Frankly, it looks like a junk yard.
So, I looked at one of his signs. Here's what I found.
Clearly, the Firefighters PAC is behind Hiremath. They are more than behind him. They are actively campaigning for him. Click here to visit their web site. See for yourself.
On the 17th, they are off to walk Rancho Vistoso with Hiremath.
Swell. Just what we need. Public servants on the street supporting a candidate; using all the respect they have gained as "first responders" and putting it behind a specific candidate.
It makes me sick.
This is an abuse of our trust.
Here's what I'd like to know.
Why have they taken sides? Why pick one candidate over another?
They are, after all, public servants, paid for with our hard earned dollars. I would prefer that they simply sit on the sidelines and let the citizens of Oro Valley make the best decision for themselves. Leave it to us. Get out of the way.
They gotta stick their nose where it don't belong.
Mike Zinkin has voiced nothing but support for them.
So, I ask, what is the "hidden agenda". Because, there must be one. Otherwise, why would the NWFD firefighters weigh-in and actively solicit votes for Hiremath?
Even more reason to get the word out.
I'm thinkin' Zinkin'
