Will those who voted incorrectly in the wrong fire district, please make checks payable to the Gordon Heights Fire District. Please remember to include the additional $ 1,000.00 to your check to make sure you cover these Killer Fire Taxes.
Or ask to have your vote rescinded. That would be the honorable thing to do.

Thank you.

These jokers have been screwing up for so long. So what else would you expect from them? Apparently their standards include the acceptance of fraud.

Above the law. Thats what the ghfd commissioners think they are. Voter scam. Isn't that a federal offense?? It seem like they are untouchables. Justice is comming and the majority of the residents have spoken there will by signing the petition. They are legends in there own minds and we will see if they are untouchables.

Acording to the Board of fire commissioners "they are well pleased with Diana Brown". This is what they are proud of
--doors opened 15 mins late
--100 foot makers not put outside
--no lights in the hall
--fireman harassing and intimidating people outside in line(complaint sent to Integrity Bureau)
--allowed voter fraud
IMPEACH THEM ALL

We have had enough of the abuse, the coverups, the insensitivity. GHFD is a fundemental problem and everyone knows it. Time has come they must go!- we are on the brink of an economic collapse and they continue to live in an artifical bubble! This tax levy CANNOT be justified in afluent times, how on God's earth can anyone justify this travesty at a time when people are literally losing everything. Their retirment, their jobs, their homes. WAKE UP and get on with what MUST BE DONE for the sake of the PEOPLE!

We now have a new appointed fire commissioner.
Can he do the right thing? Word has it the answer is no. He voted on 3 money items at the last GHFD meeting before he took the oath of office. When questioned by a resident that this was not a legal vote the resident was told to keep their mouth closed or they would be thrown out.

I am reading between the lines and you are implying that they are untouchable because they are black. Let's think for a moment - if GHFD were an all white fire district maining power through fraudulant votes and imposing thousands of tax dollars unnecessarily onto a prominently black community - ALL HELL WOULD BREAK LOOSE!
