I believe the issue on the table is the lack of a contract for the fire officers of the KFD. We should be adults and stick with this issue only. If you feel that the firefighters or any other town workers need drug testing then you need to go to the next town meeting and state your concerns in a public forum. Another possibility is to call the Mayor and meet with him in private and state your concerns.
I am a town employee and a taxpayer in this town. I find it disgusting that the contract talks have lasted this long. Unfortunately you cannot only blame the town administrator; you have to blame the fire officer’s negotiation team.
The following is an open letter to the team.
What the *@%% are you thinking?
Do you have any concept on how to negotiate a contract?
Look at the Police, CS-11, and the Teachers
They would never let it get so out of control!
Maybe we should give the negotiation team a drug test.
