“I am struck by the absence of more alternatives being suggested by the union and the fire commissioners,” Mann said.“The fire commission should be doing more than it has to this point rather than laying people off. They need to be more imaginative in their thinking.”

Which means NO money for the county!

You could care less about the Fire Department or anyone who works for it. The only thing you care about is getting press coverage and hopefully get elected some day. You are a loser. You sure have been quiet since we all found out the your watchdog group is no more. I hope you aren't advertising your crap on your website because you are illegal. I will sick the proper authorities on you.

Is Robert hiding behind yet another screen name? If it's hiding Anderson, it must be a very large name indeed.

Anderson is happy that LAFD will not be getting any money from BoCC of which LA is Manns' district, but if it ALVA where Mann lives, then the BoCC would have all the funds to bail the out.

So yes Anderson is Happy the BoCC will not help out the LAFD

You all were told over a week ago that the BOCC can not gave any money the the LAFD. SO is that Anderson's issue NO!

The BOCC can not Loan, Grant or Bond money for the Local Fire Dist.

Nice try in blaming Anderson, but just maybe it's time to replace the whole fire board!

Wow Another Anderson name. Give it up Fat Ass. You will never ever ever get elected fire commissioner. No one wants a Convicted Felon in office. And a FAt Loser felon at that.

OH guys you figured me out. I wanted to sound like my dear freind Damon so I use his username but I guess I cannot fool all of you.

Yes I am under investigation so what about it? I just want to be a fire commissioner. I would dream of it at night when I laid in prison awaiting my release.

I wish you guys like me. I do try. Vote for me next time?

Get the hip boots out, the shyt is getting deep. If the fire union are unwilling to take a cut in pay(note that they need five good years of pay for a great retirement) does that mean they are only in it for the money? I know the union is falling apart becuase only a few will get the bonus. Bonus that come at the cost of younger firefighters job.

5 good years of pay for a great retirement? is that if you only expect to live 1 year after you retire? smart people save for retirement starting with their first check from their first job because they dont want to outlive their savings which may happen anyway with obama inflation.
