Barbara Bedell is the longest tenured Commissioner. She has seen the department through difficult times, and helped the department evolve in many ways.
Barbara has always been a supportive and positive influence, even while fighting a serious medical condition; which she has now conquered.
We now have a five-member Board of Fire Commissioners, which provides a diverse wealth of experience.
Sometimes change is necessary; but stability is imperative. Barbara is that stabilizing force, with knowledge of the past and a vision for the future.
I hope you will vote for Barbara Bedell as I have.
