Below are parts 1 and 2 of her posts, reprinted with permission. Part I includes other agenda items Part II focuses on the decision to break off from Cal Fire.
To be or not to be…
The meeting was to start at 5:30 p.m. I got there at 5 p.m. because Cal Fire likes to fill the seats with their employees. There were only 10 seats left. There was not the usual sea of dark blue taking up the room, just lots of folks, families, in plain attire.
