Letter to the Editor: Victor Hernandez best choice for fire board

As a Truckee resident and active member of the local emergency service community, unique glimpses into the inner-workings of EMS and local government have been mine for the viewing. Knowing first hand that opinions are easy to come by and quick to change, Iand#8217;m very cautious to voice my opinions, with few exceptions. Here, I feel a scene of responsibility to let my opinion be known.

Victor Hernandez running for a seat on the Truckee Fire Protection District has placed me in this position of responsibility. Knowing Victor across more than 16 years, both personally and professionally, has developed my confidence in Victorand#8217;s sound judgment, sense of fiscal responsibility and commitment to EMS services locally, nationally and internationally. These attributes, coupled with Victorand#8217;s intimate understanding of our regional strengths, challenges and dynamics, puts him in the driverand#8217;s seat as the top candidate, head and shoulders above all else for this seat.

I look forward to voting for Victor in the upcoming election as the safety of our community and its visitors is in the hands of local EMS every time the need arises. Solid leadership from its board of directors is key to the success of the Truckee Fire Protection District and each of its varied duties.

Commitment, knowledge and a willingness to address issues are just a few of the necessary tools that will be brought to the table with Victor Hernandez.
