|(What she, Tebo complained of is that he did not continue with his instructors license) Yes That’s the fact! Kevin Pitman did instruct fire training that did not certify said trainees in the training! He resigned when this was brought to his attention! Fact!
Your Goat! How many times your goat! Hear say by you! Fact listen to me because you have stated this slanderous comment too many time count! The one you slander I know for FACT was far away from Hamilton County when you claim he committed the act! Slander yes other for fact are very knowledgeable of Florida Statute!
As for the Greene Family as many here are very great people and families with ties in the community that are tied to the heart with other great families here. Families that believe in doing what is right and helping each others families no questions asked! Our skin color doesn’t matter if any one is in need these families pull whatever is needed and it shows up. No you will not see or hear of this because your not included! White Springs North South no matter the name we take care of ourselves and you Joe Griffin are not needed in way shape or form!
Well looks like Kevin Pittman has a story he told you and many about this training deal. Did you know he has also continually spoke down about our fire dept. during the folk festival while in state uniform not once not twice but more! He still does this in state uniform talk about ethics! Talk about a FACT! Oh I have the names and phone numbers in my back pocket!
|So, the claim that you, Born and Raised, were present in the meeting that took place January 2018, the one when 95% of the fire department walked out, I have a hard time believing. You had only one factual statement and one half truth in your comment. Let me break it down for you, don’t worry I will quote you:
FALSE: “walked in a council meeting took issued fire helmet’s and threw them on the floor! They Made rude statements and all QUIT!”
What REALLY happened: we all sat through the meeting until the fire department issue came up and we professionally placed our helmets in front of Ms. Tebo, stated our names and positions and resigned. The rudeness came from the council as they tried to interrupt and stop their volunteer firefighters from speaking in a public forum.
TRUE: “Yes all the past firefighters QUIT themselves no one asked them to do so!”
No one asked any of us to quit or resign. We all did so on our own. I suppose you missed the December 2017 meeting when 95% of the fire department stood up and approached the town Council with a vote of no confidence against the assistant chief Andrew Greene. The firefighters were tired of being taken advantage of and lied to by their assistant chief and the council. We were all true volunteers and there was no excuse for the ill treatment we received.
HALF TRUE: ONLY HALF! “Kevin Pittman was Caught Wrong and he resigned on his own!”
Pittman was not “caught wrong” but he did resign on his own. Pittman made it clear to everyone, including Ms. Tebo, that other instructors would need to come in since the fire training kept being delayed due to certain individuals continually not showing up for training or passing out during training a.k.a. Andrew and Dominque. 95% of the department voted to finish their training as a team, we started as a team and we wanted to finish as one, so we waited for the two to have free time in their busy schedules to complete the training revolutions. Due to the delay in training Chief Pittman’s teaching certificate lapsed. That did not mean he was not experienced or trained or educated or didn’t have the qualifications, he has more than enough. He is a true leader and made sure that his team was certified. The nonsense and the lies that were told about Chief Pittman in that January meeting had nothing to do with the fire department, it had everything to do with someone’s feelings being hurt because they are not a leader and they knew that their team had no confidence in them. We walked out because we will not follow someone who lies, falsifies records, and who stands on others back’s to look good, especially when our lives are at stake. We were ignored in our vote of no confidence against the assistant chief the month prior. We stood our ground against the council because they ignored our concerns, our lives, our well-being, and the well-being of every individual in White Springs.
You may want to stop listening to lies that are being spread by certain individuals and maybe talk to someone who was truly there. So you can throw your “proverbial sucker” on the floor now.
