Well…well…well… if it’s good enough for the President..if it’s good enough for the country….it should be good enough for the VFD……here in LBTS.. …especially now that we know the “excuses” used by the de-facto Chief and the Chief of the VFD were just that….”excuses”…regarding the concern and reaction the Pompano Beach Fire  Department had about the VFD department having an oversight board……

In a previous post…it was revealed that Comm. Dodd did some looking into the assertion by both men…with another follow-up call….and just as  he found out  that the Plantation “Chief to Chief ” courtesy agreement of no “raiding”  the Plantation volunteer firefighters which these two said led to the McIntee VFD motion of a 1 year delay for any Plantation FF to join the VFD…(unanimously approved)….was not the truth…no matter which Plantation Chief or Deputy Chief was asked..(with the added discovery that the Deputy Volunteer Chief had not spoken to McIntee despite McIntee saying just that on the dais……shades of the Plantation- McIntee firetruck fiasco from the past…(this writer must have been hoodwinked again on that one while drinking the Kool-aid in those days…)… Once more …both men were less than honest…..The Chief of Pompano informed Comm. Dodd that he actually welcomed oversight boards..and had absolutely no problem with one in LBTS… and that he had not spoken to either man about any concerns….adding that he  was waiting until after the first of year to speak to Chief Perkins for the first time …OOPS!….

more to come….
