Support for Randy Franke

To the Editor: Randy Franke has shown over his years of public service that he is an outstanding leader, a knowledgeable manager and a man of wise counsel. He is a statesman in every sense of the word. Randy Franke is the kind of person that is caring and compassionate, but practical. That’s why I want him re-elected to the Marion County Fire District #1 Board of Directors. He’ll be fair and totally objective. Join me in supporting Randy Franke for re-election to the Fire District #1 Board. Barbara Adams...

Randy Franke for MCFD #1 board

To the Editor: Randy Franke is the best candidate to serve us on the MCFD#1 Board.  He provided 24 years of public service to us already as our Marion County Commissioner and four years as a volunteer on the MCFD#1 Board. Randy is the current President of MCFD#1 Board of Directors and he wants to continue to serve us in this volunteer way.  As a former volunteer firefighter for more than 15 years I can attest to the fact that he’s doing what needs to be done right now and is worthy of our continued support.  There’s no one better than Randy Franke to bring common sense back to the fire district!

Re-elect Franke and Downer

To the Editor: I was a volunteer firefighter for 15 years at the Clearlake Station, part of Marion County Fire District #1.  I know of the problems facing the fire district and am pleased that the current board led by Orville Downer and Randy Franke are making enormous strides in finding solutions.  That work needs to continue. It will be by re-electing Randy and Orville to the fire board.  I’ve known Orville Downer for a very long time and can personally vouch for his experience, knowledge and dedication.  His 32 years as a volunteer firefighter is a testament to his experience.  I’ve also watched Randy Franke over the years lead by example and take on very challenging tasks.  Neither of these individuals is afraid to challenge the status quo.  Both have the courage and commitment to do what’s needed to ensure quality services.  I know of no two people more qualified or deserving of your vote.  Let’s re-elect Orville Downer and Randy Franke May 17th.
