Your vote is important; every vote counts. Please vote for Steve Baker on Tuesday,2-9PM. As spelled out in the NYS Comptroller's audit, Eastchester Fire District needs the internal financial controls that this Board has willfully not provided. Ray Albanese has been on the Board for 30 years, if elected for another 5 yr term - a total of 35 yrs! We need a change. Please vote. EFD needs a working majority of independent, intelligent commissioners who will provide the financial controls for a $16.3mil budget. Thank you

P.S. that lovely picture of "Mary Smith" is not me. I did not submit it. Apologies to that very attractive lady.

Baker and Albanese are 2 imbeciles and do not deserve a vote. John might be the right choice. Plus, Baker is mentally unstable.

Your endorsing Baker, whom is a 2 faced mentally unstable idiot! I hope people realize that he is not the right candidate.
