If chosen by the will of the citizens of the Key Peninsula, as a write-in candidate for fire commissioner position 3 with Pierce County Fire District No. 16, I, Hal Wolverton, vow to bring back fiscal responsibility, focused planning on the needs of the people, and to strengthen our volunteer force to the level it was before the 2019 administration.
The current board of commissioners have lost focus on their duties by continuously defunding the volunteer firefighter program, and the facility maintenance and apparatus replacement budgets each year.
Our reserves are at an all-time low. Yet they have purchased controversial properties (with no real plan) putting the department in higher debt and our community at risk. We need to take control back and focus on what is best for the Key Peninsula.
Hal Wolverton, Lakebay
