Dixon, IL Mayor Disrespects Fallen Firefighters
On Saturday, May 3, 2008 a memorial service was held in Dixon, IL for firefighters in the area that have served on departments associated with BlackHawk Firefighters Association, an organization that boasts members from over 80 departments in northwest Illinois. This memorial service honored those, 43 members, who have served in the past and are now deceased either as a line of duty death or a non-duty related death. The mayor of Dixon boycotted the service as it is noted in the article in the Dixon Telegraph. The article can be seen here http://www.saukvalley.com/articles/2...286286fe8c.txt
The story on the service itself, which was very sobering for the families of those honored, can be seen here http://www.saukvalley.com/articles/2...e98830cc16.txt
All of us have to stand together. Let us show our distaste of our mayor's actions. If you have any comments for the mayor they can be posted on the paper's comment section on the story or posted on this thread.
Let's hear what you have to say.
