Well isn't that a slap in the village boards face! We elect officials to protect our communities. This board finally stood up for what was right and this total lack of reguard is displayed.

It is time our community join together in support of the village board.

I'm not saying I agree or disagree. There are 3 members of the village board who are members of the department. One would think if they were not supportive of this individual they would have spoke up during the nomination process. I have no idea if they did or didn't but one would think they would have...

So everyone knows the village board members did the right thing in not saying anything last night. They kept the two positions separate (fire department member from village board member) they will have their say at the next village board meeting. Also so it is clear Shane was the one that nominated Patrick for the 2nd assistant chief position, and wasn't going to run based on the village boards previous decision. He was basically pressured into running again by another individual based on the fact the department never received in writing why he was not approved by the village board originally. Was it the right decision probably not because now the department will have to go through and elect a new 2nd assistant. Before people get on here and post things they should seek the truth and do some fact checking.

Does that mean the board members have no voice in dept matters? They can't offer direction? Not sure who you are referring to, but one person used his name instead of just generally posting, so I take it your referring to him?

Well who-ever roped the poorboy into running must be a loonie and certainly doesnt have his best interest at heart. What is he completely dumb to encourage this young man to run?

Clearly this dept loves all this drama! They could have chose to respect the Board that governs the dept but instead the majority chose to give the finger. All the other depts in our area cant stop talking about all the craziness that comes from this group.

Well Just open all the bay doors and let the village in to run it all. Clearly the behaviors of the majority warrents these elected officials to take action. Good luck to the village board, I pray that your decisions may be guided with wisdom and heart for a love of your community and fire service. Reign in and guide the ethically blind because clearly they have not the knowledge.

okay im going to be very clear about what i say here, so read carefully. if ANYONE has any dispute, problem, quarrel, whatever with ME MY FAMILY or my fire department, then consult US. stop posting crap on a trashy public forum and come say it to our faces. you're all a bunch of cowards who cant come out and just say it. just sad individuals who have nothing better to do than be in the fire departments business. yes, we have issues just like any other fire department or business out there. and the fact that you all STILL have to keep bringing past mistakes is just pathetic. people learn and move on and if you cant realize that and accept the fact then i have no hope for any of you. all the crap being stirred up on here, is why theres so much drama in the department. so again, if you've got something to say COME SAY IT TO OUR FACES.

The village board when they are at the department meeting are members of the department only and can't speak on village matters and when they are there their village Board members and vote their conscience. They voted secretly like the members did. When they vote on officers they will take all into consideration. Also it is time to stop berated the Henry family as well as any other families in the department or have department members . There is a word called harassment and another bullying. I have the feeling that all department members are getting a little tired of all the accusations made by those who have no members in the department or don't know what is going on and just using guess work.

you're right, karma does come back around to bite you in the ass. and this is exactly what im talking about "village" bringing up irrelevant matters. what does me being on probation have to do with any of this? the thread is named "cfd elections" and you guys? you better woah up with the accusations. ive said it once, and ill say it again. i never once said anything dealing with that matter. i apologized to jason and the first time i had heard anyything to do with that matter, was that night not even ten minutes before the meeting. but say what you will people, karma is a bitch.

Yes because clearly "talking" to anyone of the fucktards in your family works.

Gretchen tried to stand up to you pieces of crap and her life was threatened. She had to move out of the house she was in because she was in fear for her and her sons life. She also quit a department that a one point she was very proud to be in.

She's a single mother who worked her ass off to get FF1, and what did she get for it?

She got treated like shit until the day she finally walked out for good.

Go ahead and deny it, the threat was heard by several people.

Your family members lie, steal, rape, threaten people, walk all over people and think your shit doesn't stink.

Karma is coming around your way.... Watch out.... The bite can be pretty intense!

<quoted text>What is the Chaplin doing publicly? I know he supports the department, and I wish he wouldn't until all this is hashed out.

He is a good man and doesn't deserve to have his name dragged through the mud because he decided to join a department with a whole lot of issues and crazies.

Please keep him out of this
Didn't mean to make it sound like you were saying things about him. Just asking everyone to keep him out of this

yet again, bringing up the past. people make mistakes, it happens were only human. and again watch what you're saying with the accusations. I PERSONALLY never threatened her. im not going to go into details, because i have no need to explain myself. i never once said my shit dont stink. i made my mistakes and manned up and faced the consequences. just like all my family members. you know, i used to think this was a wonderful community. but some of you people are just, horrible, nasty people. if you're going to have two faces, at least make one of them pretty. i used to tell people all the time how great a place copenhagen was, and how awesome it is to live here and be involved with firefighting. but now, with all this im seeing the real copenhagen. something goes awry and all of a sudden people know more about you, than you do. im done with all this he said, she said nonsense. this will be put to an end, i promise you this. have a nice day, and remember, karma works in mysterious ways.

The reality is that all this would stop but the family gives people the fuel to keep the conversation going. Not many outside the Fire Fighter group would have never known who all this was referencing until family member jumped on and informed the public.

There clearly has been so much bad done that people jump on this. They say leave the past in the past but the past keeps coming up because the behaviors are repeated. Honestly? What Dept elects a person with a crazy arrest record like that? And then, What Dept pretty much tells it's governing village board to more or less kiss their butts?

I hope things change for Copenhagen. I hope this family changes and grow to become not just good people but great fire fighters, but as far as the young man confident to post his name...if you are voting and supporting and not standing up to the wrong, that makes you part of the wrong. Family alliance doesn't mean hiding behind a ballot and thinking that holding power because of majority is the ethical thing to do.

As far as the Chaplin, well it is just my opinion but accepting of others, prayer, support and forgiveness are an amazing thing. But publically defending wrong when the wrong has caused significant pain to others, well, I am sorry but I don't agree. Inviting people to your table can be defended as if Jesus also washed the feet of many, but I have never read the Jesus chose a team or wore a specific jersey. He may not give a Crap what people think and that Is fine to but he just doesn't represent CFD he has been welcomed into a role that covers other depts. Again, if you don't stand up to the wrong, that makes you part of the wrong. So many have posted it on here, So I guess it is my turn, CFD clean your house in the name of Brotherhood, ethics in the Fire Service and simply right from wrong. Clean your house.
