'Hire from within fire department'

Print Article

To our city of Beloit officials, and to the people of Beloit.

Why would you pay a firm to look for a new chief of the Beloit Fire Department?

I wrote a letter a few years back on this same subject. I hope you know our firemen risk their lives every day for the people of Beloit. But yet you're telling them you don't feel like anyone is qualified to become their chief.

If I was a firefighter I would be very upset about looking outside their department.

Why do you feel you will get someone better?
