On behalf of the entire Patrol and Dispatcher’s Union I thank you for the attendance at the December 1, 2015 Board Meeting. We have a number of concerns in front of us, but we are confident that the entire organization will come together to address these challenges and regain our focus on delivering superior service to the residents, business and visitors in Van Buren Township. I been with this organization for 9 years and have never seen all three unions (Command, Patrol, and Fire Unions) as cohesive as we are at this time. As the union president of this union I want to give a special thank you to Lieutenant and Command Union President Mark Buckberry. His words were far beyond what many would have done for our union and organization.
