The board of directors are people that were voted in by the firefighter, not appointed by Chief Bagwell. Any member of the community can be on the board if they express an interest and are voted in by the firefighters

The bottom line is How many of the people that are fussing about all of this have ever expressed an interest in Andersonville Volunteer Fire Dept. They have been raising donations and doing fund raisers since 1977, but the majority of the people of the community has ignored them and their efforts. Now everyone is up in arms cause of this issue. Yes the initial letter could have been worded differently, but they have apologized numerous times over it. I thought we lived in a Christian society where we are taught forgiveness and tolerance. There was absolutely no need for all the personal attacks on Chief Bagwell. Those citizens should absolutely be ashamed of attacking any person on a personal level when it was decided by the whole dept. People have every right to express their opinion about the issue, but to try to ruin a mans career or degrade his family is completely uncalled for

If you don't want to pay the membership fees then don't. It's that simple. But by doing that you roll the dice on if an incident were to happen on receiving a bill for services rendered. The choice is yours to make. Do the adult thing. Gather the facts and make an informed decision.

I've got insurance to pay fire department if my house burn my lawyer & insurance company said don't pay it . On another note how much money is Bagwell going to get when he sells the new fire truck for the new department ? If he cares so much he should put that money back in the department !

The truth came out last night at the county meeting. This involves only Bagwell and the Mayor, nothing else.

That's no surprise. All he is is talk. The community supports the fire dept. Brubaker is the problem, not the chief.

the county needs to stand up and give them a rent payment because there station is on county land that the tax payers paid for and also make them get their own dispatching that we are paying for.

Isn't it odd that once Chief Bagwell flexed at the county commission meeting the mayor, the commission and old Big Talk Brubaker shut their mouths. Good to see the real men and the adults took over.
