About the $500,000.00 scam and the paid for investigation it is resolved with some actions? It is far past the time that some public disclosure should be issued. Transparently and disclosure can only occur at the insistence of the watchdog 4th Estate. The public is still waiting.

Hopefully the new Chief Financial Officer will act to put in place financial safeguards to prevent any more embezzlement at our Volunteer Fire Departments, as well as force the San Leon Volunteer Fire Department to produce its delinquent Certified Audits.
