The endorsement and application step for the PFA Elections has now passed. One endorsement application for each position, President and Secretary, has been submitted and accepted. Therefore, per the By-Laws (Article 9, Section 5) no election is necessary. The PFA Board would like to congratulate Mark Milson for his appointment as President. Mark will be seated at the next PFA meeting to be announced shortly. This will take place as soon as possible to fill the vacated position. The PFA board would also like to congratulate Landon D’Antonio on his appointment to the Secretaries position. Landen will be seated in December after the current Secretary wraps up his term.
Please join us in congratulating our new Board Members!

4742 Members,

In October we’ll be holding elections for the President and Secretary positions.  This cycle will be moved up by one month due to the vacancy of the President. The elected President will assume the position in October and the Secretary will transition in December. This will give the new Secretary time to transition into their new role. If you are interested in either of these positions here’s a timeline to follow:

October 1:

Due date to submit endorsement form with 5 endorsements (found on website https://www.iaff4742.org/members-area/member-forms/).
The Endorsement form will be used as your application.

October 7th:

Deadline to submit a Campaign Statement (optional)
This will be sent to everyone and put on the Union Website

October 14th:

The board of directors will examine each application for minimum qualifications

October 15th – October 21st

Elections will be held and voting will be held open until October 21st.

All submittal of the necessary guidelines above shall be received by the Union Secretary no later than the timeframe established.  I look forward to this election process and I hope we have full participation of the membership.

 

Best Regards,

Robert Simpson

The Apple Valley Professional Firefighters Association is proud to inform our community of what is going on with your Fire District. Upon the successful passing of Measure A, thanks to the support of the community, our District has grown and evolved. This growth has allowed us to have more of a presence in our community and provide the Town and its citizens the care and support they are so deserving of. Again, we your firefighters want to thank you for your support. You supported us and we’re here to support you.
This November two (2) seats on the Apple Valley Fire District Governing Board are set to expire. Your firefighters were very proactive to find qualified candidates that will not only represent you, the local citizen, but also to find candidates that can move our District forward into the future.
This is why your firefighters endorse Colleen Kuhn and Ronald (Aaron) Conley for the Apple Valley Fire District Governing Board. These candidates have a history in public service and have the knowledge to understand how your Fire District operates, but also the ability to ensure your Fire District continues to serve the community to its fullest potential. In the coming weeks and days we’ll be posting more information on these two experienced candidates. Please click on the links below to learn more about these candidates and check back often.
We hope you support:

It is with deep sadness that CAL FIRE can confirm that this morning while battling the Ferguson Fire on the Sierra National Forest, CAL FIRE Heavy Fire Equipment Operator Braden Varney from the CAL FIRE Madera-Mariposa-Merced Unit was tragically killed. He leaves behind a wife and two small children. Please join us in keeping Braden, his loved ones and his fellow fire family in your thoughts as they grieve this sudden loss.
