Well, even though we dont agree with every opinion, Id say that we both agree that a well educated person who's handy would make a good candidate.
more importantly, we both agree that the candidate should be highly motivated to be a nyc firefighter and do whatever it takes to get on the job regardless of there backround.
wish you guys the best of luck on getting otj...we might work with eachother and never relize it:)
16-18 months after a new exam is given..i think thats academy time as well.
does anyone know when Garaufnuts might make a final ruling?? or can he continue jerking us around indefinitely? I remember him saying something about not wanting to drag this out. that was early summertime. I LOVE 6019!! ITS SO MUCH FUN!!
oh, and when you ETS from the military, the first thing you should have done is brought a copy of your dd214 to the county office building, to your county clerk, they will file an original away for you for safe keeping, then you never have to rely on the VA. just fyi.
no one including the asst. deputy commish knows when this final ruling is going to come down. But the city will still appeal if your worried about that. Mainly because of the intentional discrimination charge against the city, if the city fails to appeal it's as if they agree to intentionally discriminating against minorities. As long as a appeal is possible 6019 is still alive. Even if a new test is given and another class is in the works or even hired from, if an appeal is won hiring of at least the initial 312 is still possible (somewhat as what happenend in the 80's with the women's lawsuit and classes going in 7 years after test was given).
I would just like to take this opportunity to embrace MLK day. As a white male i applaud what Mr King did in his lifetime to make everyone equal, to have equal opportunity for everyone, and for everyone no matter what their skin color is to have every opportunity to get that job they have always desired.
I would also like to call out the vulcans for going against everything that Martin Luther King stands for,,, Equal opportunity for Everyone. Their lawsuit is not only discriminatory but downright idiotic and sickening. If Mr. King was alive today he would be shocked at the actions of Paul Washington and John Coombs. Every man is created equal and the #6019 test that we all took was the best test for the job, and yest these idiots still want to give this job to people who are not worthy. Mr. King would have been ashamed of their actions to say the very least.
I know you are out their Vulcans,,,, I know you are reading this,,,And I swear before my day is done on this earth,, I will find each and every one of you,, and make sure you remember Martin Luther King and what he stood for, FAIRNESS and EQUAL OPPORTUNITY for EVERYONE!
Thanks, that's awesome.
By law, is there a deadline to which a judge has to issue his/her final ruling?
Who would have thought that the NY Mets would be on the Rock going through
some training drills before the top 320 from 6019. What's next!!!
Does anyone happen to have the link for the Westchester exam that is being given soon? I remember it was posted on here a while back, but I can't find it. I'm fairly sure I remember that the application is being closed within the next week or so. If nothing else, I just want to take it for the practice. Thanks guys....
I was asked to relay the message that there will be a Merit Matters meeting on Staten Island this Thursday evening. I do not have anyones email address, so I posted the information below. I figured this would be the quickest way to get the word out Take care.
