There's Smoke, and Fire?

I was campaigning for Commissioner Pam Militello on the corner of Hillsboro Blvd. and Federal Hwy. this morning, arrived at 7:00 - yawn- coffee thermos in one hand, Pam’s sign in the other, waving it at drivers who were yawning their way to work or wherever. By 7:30 the word must have gone out to Miller, who has the firefighters’ support, and a half a dozen or so firefighters came out to wave Miller signs. Here I will digress for a short editorial.

The Firefighters chose to support Miller when they discovered that Pam would not agree to vote their way on pensions and salaries. They were not happy when, during the last four years, she tried to get some relief for the taxpayers during firefighter union/city contract negotiations. Pam refused their endorsement anyway. So they picked Miller. Hah, I say! Miller must have fed them some BS, and told them what they wanted to hear, because he is Eller’s puppet, Eller was heard in the men’s room tutoring Miller, telling him what to say, at a recent forum.

And, boys and girls, Eller is not a friend of the firefighters’ union. Again, I say, hah!

Anyhow, back to the narrative. A couple of the fire boys drove what I think is Miller’s golf cart, complete with Miller sign, on the street (no, I didn't see a license plate) a-whoopin' and a-hollerin', and then drove it into the fire station. Gives rise to musing about if they are storing campaign materials in the firehouse; the cart is a violation just being there. Another fire boy was out waving a sign, turned and pulled off his campaign shirt, under which was his uniform, and went into the fire station. I must wonder, was he on duty? Sure looked like it. I don’t care what they do on their own time, but if they are using city property and time for campaigning,


Hey, Mikey, wazzzzz-up with this.
