PFA Board Elections
Vice President and Treasurer
Voting will appear below on December 1st at 0800
and run thru December 7 at 1700.
The Process according to the By-Laws of the PFA:
During my tenure as Vice President we’ve accomplished many goals such as bringing on legal representation through Mastagni Holstedt, updating our bylaws, negotiating an MOU that increased pay, medical benefits and started a 457 match for members with a 2% retirement formula, fought to seat 3 board members that support us, started the Apple Valley Firefighter Foundation, assisted, represented, and protected members throughout various personnel issues and so much more. I by no means accomplished any of this on my own and truly believe that we have achieved these goals because of the hard work and unity put forth by our membership.
Moving into the future we have a lot more to accomplish. Bullet train potentially being built, long term COVID-19 impacts, Unfunded liability costs increasing, and Recruitment and Retention are just a few of the challenges we have ahead of us. I believe keeping a positive working relationship with Management and the District Board will be paramount as we all work together to overcome these issues and I look forward to continuing to work on these as your Vice President for the next 2 years if given the opportunity.
