Article in todays Whidbey News Times re:purchase of OH fire dept rescue aid vehicle.

Concerned about lack of communication between Almberg and fire dept. on how things were done or are done. ignored requests to sit down and discuss anything he questions, look at rigs together or help him see what the fire dept. is all about. Yet he can write his opinions like its factual and hurt others in the process.

He’s been wrong to many times to even count but yet never resends it, apologizes or makes corrections of any kind. Something is really wrong with this whole picture. Anyone have thoughts on this? How many times does the information need to be discussed and gone over before he understands it? His thoughts on bid process were never discussed with the people involved in bidding. Knowledge is a good thing if you want it. Mental block seems to happen whenever the mayor or the fire chief are involved. He turns twists and out and out lies to make him look good to the public? hmmmm seems that’s his hope and hurting others and putting them down are of no consequence. Something wrong with this whole picture.

Thank you and I guess this was just venting. Sorry but I’m very unhappy. Jessie did a great job on the article she only quoted what Almberg said.
