The Massachusetts State Legislature chose to ignore the voices of 7,561 Fall River registered voters and proceed with the Fire Chief change from civil service to contract.
As ignorant as they come, State Senator Joan Menard- former boss/mentor of Adam "Chappy" Chapdelaine said in the Herald News, that in her 10 years in the Senate and 20 more in the House, she had never seen a voter referendum petition filed against a Home Rule request. “I give them credit. They’re concerned about it." ......YES WE ARE CONCERNED! yet a group of politicians lead by Bob Correia and Joan Menard willfully chose to ignore our voices.
Please do 2 things:
1) DO NOT VOTE FOR BOB CORREIA OR JOAN MENARD EVER AGAIN
2) PLEASE Contact Governor Patrick to voice your concern about
the situation - he is able to veto the bill. Remind him about
the 7,561 registered voters that said NO to a contract fire chief.
