I am writing this letter to ask for your support and vote for Chief Robert Lang for Hicksville Fire Commissioner.
I have been an active member of the Hicksville Fire Department for more than 50 years and was elected and served as a fire commissioner. I speak of my background so you know that I have the utmost respect for all of the volunteer fire service. During my many years of service, 24 different chiefs and 20 different fire commissioners have served the department. These are positions that can be very challenging and can test the very best of abilities.
With my many years of exposure to the people who have served as the elected officers, I can honestly state that Robert Lang is the man for the job. He has shown the strong character, the calm demeanor and a level headed competence. Lang has undaunted ability to make the correct decisions, even at the times when they may be unpopular. He has exhibited these qualities as the leader of the fire department – chief of the department.
The dedication to the office, the commitment to the community and the work ethic are the qualities that Robert Lang will bring to bear as fire commissioner. Please vote for Chief Lang on Tuesday, Dec. 8.
Ex-Commissioner, Hicksville Fire District
Member, Hicksville Fire Department
