John:"We don't want someone who doesn't live in our town making decisions for us either"... Toxic: "However it would take the checkbook out of the hands of the negligent and reckless. What to do...." Agree with both

Toxic(Fred) taxpayers did Not vote for liquidation Fred you and your other bird brains members conned the taxpayers to vote for a Budget, which they Approved. Then shortly thereafter you also conned your fellow board members to vote to liquidate. So Fred remember the Taxpayers voted to approve your budget . They did NOT vote to liquidate. Fred just go AWAY and take Morgan and your gang and just go away. By the way you all looked and sounded at yesterday's meeting at the state house like you all have FARTS in your head.

We don't want someone who doesn't live in own town or PAY THE TAX involved with CCFD. Oh that's right we only worry about living in town because they might need the services of half the (here's the town part) COVENTRY fire services paid for by the CCFD VOTERS.
