The fundamental building block of the fire service in MOST of PA is the volunteer. If the state or other municipalities get too heavy-handed, the volunteers will go away.
If/when that happens, any money saved on equipment will be gobbled up by having to pay professional firefighters....big taxes folks !!!

I never implied that you are supporting anyone. Your entry gives no hint at who you support now or have in the past.

If you ckeck the the ISPs you will see that some dunderhead decided to use the moniker I used to incorrectly "cut and paste" from different sources in entry #230 to confuse and distract readers.

Although you may not have meant to do so, your first posting IS a compelling arguement for "at large" school board representation. I applied your arguement to the QCSD Board elections because that is the topic of this thread.If I may quote from your latest post, "Us middle people are the masses, so hear us!". You seem to be for doing what is best for the majority- not for small interest groups. Am I incorrect in that reading of what you wrote? If so, I apologize.

Everyone has "an agenda" or an underlying reason for their actions- including candidates who run in school board elections. Candidates have official platforms. Their platform is supposed to be what they are pledging to accomplish if elected- the basis for electing them- their agenda.
