Lamont has experience needed to serve district

Editor,

I am voting for T.J. Lamont for fire commissioner, North Whidbey Fire and Rescue.

I have done the research and he is the most qualified of the two candidates. He has served as fire commissioner for 12 years at NWFR, so he knows what the job involves. He was a captain/EMT in North Whidbey Fire and Rescue for 26 years as a volunteer firefighter, so he knows what challenges the firefighters face.

During his term as fire commissioner he was instrumental in seeing that the department stayed within budget. This enabled them to put away enough money to purchase two new engines, one new water rescue boat and a new office building on Midway Boulevard for the fire department administration. All this was paid for in cash, no loans and no costly interest. The commissioners didn’t ask for more money from the taxpayers. We need to get him back in office.

Vote for T. J. Lamont Fire Commissioner in November.
