Keep both fire commissioners | Federal Way letters
I find it disingenuous at best that Len Englund, board chair of the Lakehaven Utility District, would endorse Jerry Galland for the board of fire commissioners, when just a year earlier Galland’s request to be appointed to an opening on the Lakehaven board was soundly rejected; not to mention that he was rated “not qualified” in his race for the state Legislature.
While I don’t question Englund’s integrity, I do question his motive, if not his judgment in making such an audacious assertion that not good enough for Lakehaven is good enough for the fire district — and to put his personal stamp of approval on such a misleading action is nothing short of offensive, not just to me, but to the entire community.
We currently have Jim Fossos and Mark Thompson, two of the most qualified and experienced commissioners in this state currently serving this community with distinction on the South King Fire and Rescue fire commissioners board. I ask you to join me in keeping them there.
