Splitsville City Council no longer

Comments: 0

The results are in, the Independent ticket will fill the elected seats in Roanoke City Council soon. This historical win, will most definitely end the indecision of the current regime. The big ticket items have most probably been decided by the election. Victory Stadium to be torn down, and two stadiums will be built, one at each of the High Schools.

Where do the Firefighters stand? That is a good question. As most of you know, the Independent ticket was not endorsed by the Firefighters, or the Police Officers, or the Sheriff’s Deputies. The reason why the Independent Ticket was not endorsed is most probably due to better interview answers, and a better outlook by the other candidates. This does not mean that the Independent ticket is anti-Public Service. Actually, all of the Candidates seemed to be pro Public Service.

So where does this leave the Firefighters in the grand scheme of things. Well, we will have to see. As far as I can tell, there are some really big issues facing Roanoke City Council; Schools, Victory Stadium(s), the greenway, Downtown improvements, the decreasing population, etc. Hopefully we will be able to fit in there somewhere to improve our situation.

By the way – I am working on getting clarification on the Overtime Pay (or lack there of) that the Police Department was able to reverse.
