A Letter From Fire Commissioner Bob Jarman

Posted July 29, 2020 at 5:31 pm by

I am writ­ing on behalf of San Juan Island Fire Dis­trict #3 to extend our board­’s full and deep­est apol­o­gy for the offen­sive com­ment made by Com­mis­sion­er Car­di­nale dur­ing last night’s joint com­mis­sion meet­ing. The com­mis­sion­er’s com­ment was offen­sive, dis­re­spect­ful and com­plete­ly inappropriate.

Fire Dis­trict #3 does not in any way con­done the use of words, phras­es, ges­tures or any­thing that amounts to state­ments of hatred or dis­crim­i­na­tion from any­one in this orga­ni­za­tion. Com­mis­sion­er Car­di­nale is per­son­al­ly apol­o­giz­ing to the Pub­lic Hos­pi­tal District.

Fire Dis­trict #3 has and always will be a pub­lic ser­vice agency that respects every­one we serve and work with, includ­ing our pub­lic, our elect­ed offi­cials and our membership.

I am deeply sor­ry for the offen­sive, dis­re­spect­ful and inap­pro­pri­ate words expressed dur­ing the joint meet­ing of our two commissions.

Bob Jar­man, Chair
Fire Dis­trict Board of Commissioners
