So are they afraid of him? How powerful is this guy? It sounds like he is the greatest firefighter ever ( I don't believe it ) and he is powerful enough to make the board quiver in fear?

He might be a good man but not worth 120.000 dollars a year.

If people would take the time they spend griping about this and do a little research they might learn a thing or two. Such as the fact the Chief Bagwell will remain a volunteer member. He will not be getting paid a single dime. so this talk of $120,000 per year is nonsense.

I don't believe this ! I think he is getting something out of it ! I would love to see the finance book like we use to see use to get a flyer that told how much money they took in & how much they were spending on what !

I need to apologize to Bagwell. I have now learned that all of this was started by Jim Brubaker who was mad that he didn't get selected to the Board.

That's pretty funny . Brubaker needs to buy his on fire truck and park it in his drive way like he did the police car .

This is not Bagwells fault it is Brubaker and the Board.

The only paid personelle would be the office manager and firefighter/emts selected to take on full time rolls at the department. Bagwell- calling him Baghead does nothing but make you look like the 5th grade bully on the play ground, grow up- is not applying for any position within the department. He will remain the chief- who is under direction of the board of directors, who are members of the community, not fire dept personelle- as a volunteer.

I agree that it is not chief Bagwells fault. He works for the Board who makes him take action. He is just a firefighter. The Board and Brubaker are causing this mess.

I agree, get off Chief Bagwell and ask the board why they, not he, did this?

Still, he is just a fireman. They control the shots and send these letters.
