Keep the EMA office as is; it’s working fine now

June 12, 2014
Marietta Times

I attended a June 10 meeting where Sheriff Larry Mincks proposed taking over the daily operations and disaster planning for the Washington County EMA. Long-time EMA Director Jeff Lauer also was present but he did not address questions or explain his concerns for fear of repercussions; However, several members of area volunteer fire departments spoke out against the sheriff's proposal, including the head of the county firefighter's association. Our hope is the public is paying attention to this matter and will also pressure our County Commissioners to reject the proposal.
