A Letter From Fire Commissioner Bob Jarman
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
