Thanks for continued trust

fire comm. A huge thank you to all who supported my re-election for Fire Commissioner with the Woodinville Fire and Life Safety District.
    I will continue to vote against irresponsible expenditures and demand accountability and efficiency. As I have said before, a Fire Department is only as strong as its community support. It is your money and you should demand that it be spent wisely.
    The Board of Commissioners must receive input from the entire community. There has to be a bridge between the department and the users of our services.
    Education and prevention will continue to be priorities. I also will continue to communicate with other departments regarding possible ways to save more dollars by consolidations and/or mergers.
    Finally, I look forward to establishing a much needed voice for the unincorporated area residents with the County's Growth Management Planning Council. Again, I thank you for your continued trust and confidence in me.

Don Leggett, Fire Commissioner
