I am very concerned about the financial compensation our city's firefighters receive. It is ludicrous that they put their lives on the line to make less than $30,000 a year. We need to show our firefighters that we appreciate their altruism and get their salaries more on par with the state's average. Perhaps instead of wasting our tax money on a superfluous baseball stadium, we should channel that money to the salaries of these men and women who pull us out of fires, save our belongings, and deliver lifesaving care when we have medical emergencies.
