Apology and explanation of Detroit Fire Department post.
by Richard Clement
Closed Firehouse at Livernois and Curtis
apologize to the Men and Women of Detroit Fire if you were offended by the
statement Bed and Breakfast, especially the widows.This is a misunderstanding between the intent
of the message and what it should have implied that being a Firefighter is a
good job with a lot of dangerous and hard work.Some
of the firehouses that I worked in doing computer hardware and software upgrades, the
kitchens had bbq fire pits and gas grills installed.I had the chance to observe a few
Firefighters cooking sitr-fry one day at a firehouse and, it looked so good and
smelled even better.They were pretty
nice to me also but I could not stay for dinner.We want our firefighters to be well fed, well
paid and, safe when they go to work. If the facilities need an upgrade, then
make a list and it will be addressed. Mr. Cushingberry never wrote any of the messages
so don’t hate on him. Therefore I would be more than honored take up all of the offers
that some of you made to Councilman Cushingberry to ride a rig, put on some
gear and, go up the ladder on the fire
engine. I will be leading an investigation of DFD facilities for the councilman. Starting with the
firehouses in District 2, I will be going to see what is REALLY going on in DFD
as an investigator. If additional hardware
is needed then, your concerns will be addressed.
We will be adding additional media content creators on the Facebook
page for Mr. Cushingberry. This includes more media personnel and unpaid
interns in journalism. Mr. Cushingberry has no intentions on resigning over a
traffic ticket or, resigning period.After
thinking about it over the weekend, I am not quitting either. It is time to get up and walk it off. In 30 days the
council has accomplished a lot. Board positions have been filled, corporation
counsel has been appointed and the streetlights are coming on.This does not sound like a dysfunctional
group of councilmembers. When all these facts come to light, Nolan Finley is
still wrong and Richard Clement was right. Given my new position, others will have to
speak up and out for me a little more advocating the causes that I was speaking
out for in Lansing and Detroit.
Sincerely, Richard Clement – Legislative Aide to Councilman
George Cushingberry Jr.
