Well, it sounds like the SRV Fire District board has representatives of the firefighters' fraternity and well as relatives & associations with the union.
Makes for interesting negotiations. I would expect those board members that have such relationships & associations will recuse themselves when involved in evaluating & negotiating union contracts.
Basic Question: So, who is representing me, the taxpayer??

Using reserves to balance it's budget and pay salaries? Wake up people!!!
I drive past our local Fire Station twice a day, there are never less than 12 personal vehicles parked in the lot. I'm all for strong Police and Fire coverage, but why can 3 Police Officers keep Danville safe every night but it takes at least 12 Firefighters at this one station?
Follow the money...

We must drive by the same Fire House. I have the same reaction about the staffing there.
I am told the San Ramon Valley Fire District is the CADILLAC ESCALADE CAPITAL of the USA. Now, watch all those big SUVs disappear!!!
