To the editor:
There have been 22 commissioners of the Matlacha/Pine Island Fire Control District since the last millage cap was voted in 2000. All commissioners ran or were appointed because they felt they could make a difference. Believe it or not, all of us have made a bad decision at one time or another.
We need your vote to increase our cap to 3.75 mills. This does not mean we will go to the cap just allow us to if needed.
One thing we have been lax in is informing the public about our Fire Department. Come in and see what we do. No matter how we got to where we are and who blames who, we need your support.
Treasurer Matlacha/Pine Island Fire Control District
