NUKED: Firefighters Ballot Question about Standards

The Firefighters had put a ballot question on for November, 2004. But that one was knocked off the ballot by Mayor Murphy. The second generation question was put onto the ballot for May, 2005. But that was taken off by the firefighters.

The question was to insist upon the fire standards. But that standard was put into the new contract, about to be voted upon by council.

So, there will be no ballot question for the voters of the city from the firefighters. The other ballot question has to deal with the county row office reform measure.

On Wednesday, I expect to see a showing of citizens to rally about their closed fire houses. Time will tell if this gets to be a hot issue in certain parts of the city, or not.
