Tony was a great fireman and he a great guy. Everyone has made mistakes and well as yourself. Not only that but I would like to know where you got your facts because he hasn't and how a DUI has anything with being the fire chief. How would you like to say you didn't deserve your job because you ran a stop light or even your self had a DUI

Sue, I think you have been misinformed. There are at least 3 Tony Reynolds in Madisonville. My father has never ever had a DUI. He has dedicated his entire life to the Madisonville Fire Department. I believe he served for 34 years. He started at the bottom and worked his way up from engineer, to lieutenant, to captain, to major. 34 years of him putting fires out and saving lives. He has tons of experience and is well loved by soooooo many people. He goes out of his way help anyone he can. When there is snow there, he takes his truck out and pulls people out of ditches. If he sees someone broke down, he stops and helps them. He helps take care of my elderly grandparents. He raised 3 kids and did a wonderful job. Since then he adopted 3 other kids and is raising them. He is a wonderful fireman, father, and husband. No one deserves Fire Chief more than him. It is hard to find good people like my father these days. If he is hired, he will do many wonderful things for Madisonville and continue to help and save lives. He is definitely and asset to the Madisonville Community. God Bless everyone!

Many people have had DUI's and that doesn't make them bad people. In a town like this, many other people have been given "breaks" because a DUI would be bad publicity. Not so much now since the police really hunt for people who drink and drive, but it has happened. The legal limit is really strict..08 is just a couple beers to some people.

I have no opinion on Tony for fire chief, but I wouldn't condemn anyone for getting a DUI, especially if they were close to the .08 limit.

She is right, you must be thinking of someone else having a DUI.
Tony is a wonderful person and would be great for MFD.

Regardless if they swap out leadership in the fire and police dept. I'm just hoping things get better. Such as the Fire Dept. getting new equipment that will help them serve the community better. As well as if it's needed newer technology that will help them get the calls in faster and them dispatched out quicker.

As far as the police force goes, I think we have to many people on there already that are apart of the "old system" aka the "good ole boy system". And starting at the top and elimating problems would work best. I've watched a few times the police handle things that was very questionable. I appreciate the ones who are honest and work very hard, but it's the ones who aren't, and are full of themselves that bring the others down.

I agree that there is too much "good old buddy" in the police department. Too many officers abusing power and covering for each other in the name of job security and career advancement. Madisonville has too many police compared to other towns this size. We should have a really low serious crime rate but from what I have heard, our men in uniform spend a lot of time dealing with minor traffic offenses.

Thank you Boom10! You are right. He did an excellent job for the Madisonville Fire Department at every level. Every promotion he ever got he earned with hard work and good values. We rarely got to see him because he worked so much. He did that because he truely cares about the people of Madisonville and would be honored to help keep the people of Madisonville safe. Thank you for supporting my dad.

Ok here is my 2 cents!! I can see no way that he would risk putting Cunnningham in as Cheif....he couldn't even pass his Captains test after several atemps...and futhermore if his wife didn't go to work with him he would not be able to make a decision because she tells him when to go to the bathroom! He is a good person in some ways but there is no way he has the intelligence to run the Fire Dept.....Tony is a very good man and he has the experience and knowledge to do it....if their is going to be a change in the Cheifs job then if it is between these two there is not but one choice!!! I donot know the Cheif we have now personally but I think we have a great fire dept. and if something is not broke then don't try and fix it! I am sure there are things that can be bettered but that is with anything....there sure are alot more important things in this town that needs his attention more I think!

Forget all these guys (gals), we need some new blood. Do a national search for new chiefs. Maybe get retired chiefs from a large city that want to move to a smaller area. Get someone to bring big city ideas to this area. More importantly, just new people instead of recycling the old ones.
