District OfficersThe resident, whose name is Richard Morris, cites a NY State Comptroller opinion that the two posts are "incompatible." The reason for this is that the town has budgetary power over the fire district, at least partially. So how can Baird make an unbiased decision in regard to fire district funding? Well, he can't, can he?:
Commissioner John Tobin as Chairman
Commissioner Richard Knibbs
Commissioner Larry Arnold
Commissioner Harold Baird
Commissioner Russ Wood
Commissioner Jim Beaurmen
Commissioner Thomas Dempsey
Treasurer Richard Diffendale
Secretary Kim Baird
Baird is apparently using his status as fire commissioner in his campaign literature, according to Morris.
Gonna have to do some research on this one.
