if they'd properly allocate monies,rather than lining their own pockets, then maybe the dept would not find itself in a financial upset.

You can't get ride of him as a chief until he want's to. The man own the fire department before he ever got funds from the county. I don't understand how he could be broke when everything he own's including his home beside the race track is claimed under the fire department so that he doesnt have to pay taxes like everyone else. I'm suprised that he doesn't use the tumor to his advantage. If someone ever wanted to make it hard on him all they have to do is record where he is cursing on the radio's. That can make it a federal problem for him.

I don't think very highly of Bruce James. None of these accusations surprise me. I know for a fact that many years ago he fired a mechanic that worked in his garage on Ragland Road, who had just had a new baby two weeks before because the man would not become a volunteer fireman at the fire department. Now, how dirty is that. They say you reap what you sow, and it is coming back around to bite him in the butt.

What ever happened to the hobby shop he owned one time? Didn't it burn down?

I will not support Bradley Fire Dept as long as Bruce James is associated with it and I will make every effort to defeat the next fire levy as long as funding is provided to this agency. They could prosper and citizens would help and have offered to help but James will ruin this agency if he already hasn't!
