Saratoga Springs Professional Firefighters Have Taken an Official Position on the Charter Election

By Richard Sellers | Letters to the Editor

The Saratoga Springs Firefighters IAFF Local 343, proudly endorses the City of Saratoga Springs current form of government and opposes the charter change being proposed on the ballot this year (2020). We, as the Saratoga Springs Firefighters IAFF Local 343, confidently support Saratoga Works, Saratoga Success, and One Saratoga. Sincerely, Nicholas Colucci    Secretary     IAFF Local #343

- Richard Sellers, Spokesman for SUCCESS, Saratoga Springs
