We are finally getting public safety agencies on the same page. I'm a little diaappointed that you didn't mention one of our own, Pleasanton resident Bill McCammon retired Alameda County Fire Chief who has been leading this effort from the beginning. He is the East Bay Regional Communications System.

Thank you Bill. Now maybe you can help us reform the out of control pension system. Bill McCammon:

Monthly pension $16,218.15
Annual pension $194,617.80
