I have attended every board of directors meeting for the Cannon Beach Rural Fire Protection District in the last six years. At each meeting, people are asked to sign in. This includes firefighters, speakers and the public.

Not until the November 2015 meeting did we ever see any public attendance. The board of directors meeting became so large we had to change our regular meeting room to a larger one. My point being, this recall does not have a solid truthful foundation of information to build these accusations against the three board members who are being recalled. The public did not attend the board meetings to experience the two and a half year process that evolved.

These directors are not paid. They take time out of their lives, away from their business and family to serve their community. In my opinion, for the last six years they have done a darn good job.
