It seemed odd to me to return from vacation last weekend to find Cannon Beach Fire Chief Balzerā€™s vehicle parked at the station. I am much more accustomed to seeing the vehicle responding Code 3 to some weekend emergency. I have known Mike Balzer for over 10 years and have personally observed his dedication and commitment to Cannon Beach Fire and Rescue and to the community he serves. In the absence of any misconduct on the part of Chief Balzer, he should be immediately reinstated.
