The Affton fireman have chosen a candidate to become they're new boss. Robert Heheyer, this has been a practice exercised for years. Hehmeyer was a member of the Affton school board and resigned in November 08 just six month into his term stating he lost the fire for the job and is going to step aside costing the school district thousands to put the postion back on the ballot. The fireman have a slush fund called F.A.C.E fund (fireman's association committee to elect) a political fund used to finance the campaigns for the election to office to become they re boss. They have set up paycheck deductions and also organizing benefit BBQ's on Gravois Rd. to raise money for this fund. Its like buying your boss, wouldn’t we all like to pick our own boss, the person that's in charge of giving you your pay increases, benefit packages and retirement pension all on the taxpayers dime. Kuelker has funded his campaign out of his own pocket. Now the fireman have approach Affton businesses with the Robert Kuelkers campaign signs telling the owners that the Affton fireman are not supporting Kuelker and were just letting you know that,now that sounds like bullying and intimidation to me. Don’t be fooled these fireman's political organizations they are there to work on the taxpayer sympathy. The firefighters have gained payroll increases,also100 pct. paid by district family health care,and large pensions. All while earning a hefty salary of 75k per year plus overtime.The median salary in Affton is 43k per year while the Affton residents have lost income,healthcare and pensions due to the weathered economy
