To the Editor:

I would like to thank everyone who came out and voted in the fire commissioner election.  It was nice to see 214 votes, up from about 120 last year I believe.

Those who voted for me, I say thank very much and the fight continues.

I’m gonna keep on doing what I do.  It’s very hard to go against the machine that’s been running for many years.  I realize that.

But I’m sure some would say it was nice to have a choice, even if I was the (gasp!) outsider.
