Want a great quote? Just call Midway Fire Chief Stephen Demeter – the highest paid government worker in South Santa Rosa County.
Demeter is telling the Pensacola News Journal that the district could lay off as many as 14 more firefighters and close one of its two stations. We have been told that the district only has 29 firefighters. The estimated impact of Amendment 1 is less than 10 percent.
How does that translate to nearly half the firefighters?
