New King County District 28 fire commissioners inherited financial mess | Letter

The King County Fire District 28 levy failed, resulting in a budget shortfall. It is my opinion, the reason is the mismanagement of funds spent by the former commissioners of which one is Mr. Hannity. Along came elected-by-a-large margin Angie Stubblefield and then appointed Commissioner McCall.

They had to make difficult decisions including letting go two firemen and two administrative staff. When funds are spent recklessly, cuts have to be made.

Don’t place the blame on the new commissioners for the financial mess that was left for them to deal with.

Our firefighters perform an excellent service to our community and we meed the funding so they can continue to do so. Let the commissioners do their job.
