I met Robert Angrisano when working to defeat the merger, ensuring our Fire Department remained strong and independent. He WILL NOT entertain contracting us away.
Did you know commissioners can do that without a vote of the people, essentially gutting our Fire Department? With one other Commissioner still on the board that voted to put the merger on the ballot, I believe if Robert’s opponent is re-elected, he will attempt to contract us away to Issaquah/District10 EFR.
Two years ago, Fall City residents elected a commissioner that represents the residents. Now it’s time to elect the second one, and that’s Robert. Robert is the Commissioner that will keep us strong and independent, listen to residents, and respond to our questions or concerns.
Robert is a retired executive with many years experience running a successful business. His financial knowledge is what our current board needs. He will implement needed asset management planning and a fiscally responsible budget.
Robert is FIRE strong with 17 years as a Fire Commissioner serving as Commission Chair, works for Swedish Hospital as an Emergency Medical Technician, and has been a volunteer firefighter for 31 years. I so respect the countless hours Robert gave advocating COVID-19 testing for patients and staff at Nursing Homes and Assisted/Adult Living Facilities, being a vaccinator at the two mass vaccinations held at the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and many other public vaccination sites, being a vaccination instructor and clinical tester.
Robert Angrisano has my strong support, and I will be voting to elect him as Fall City Fire Commissioner.
