UPDATE:Please support the trio of Ek, Vacio and McKenna. They could have been automatically re-elected, (and saved the District about $60,000) except for this... Keep reading. An existing Director, who is not up for re-election this election, had his son running with the exact same name (and no Jr.) for the Board. He's a 22 year old. The name as listed, identical to his father's, and a portion of his statement were challenged in San Diego Superior Court. The Court ordered the name be listed as a 'second' (II) as it is on the son's birth certificate. A derogatory portion of his ballot statement was also ordered removed. His employment was also ordered changed to 'Entrepreneur' as he apparently sells magic cards. The San Diego Union Tribune article is here: Judge: San Miguel Fire District candidate must differentiate between himself and his father I am very happy the District has returned to a stand-alone District. I will NOT be in the running for a Director's position in 2018! Randy Dibb was Deputy Sheriff in this District from 1980 to 2012
"I am ready to serve my community again with the San Miguel Fire Protection District as a member of the Board of Directors. With your support, we will make a difference."
Vote Randy Dibb for Director, San Miguel Fire Protection District
The Right Man For The Job
LEADERSHIP - TRUST - EXPERIENCE - A FRESH VOICE
The San Miguel Fire Protection District is managed by the Board of Directors, comprised of 7 members. Four of these seats are up for election in the upcoming General Election this November. One current member of the Board is retiring from office and 3 others currently holding Director positions are running for re-election.
About Randy DibbFirst thing you should know about me is: I AM NOT A POLITICIAN. I don't have aspirations of using this position as a stepping stone to other positions. I am here as a concerned resident of the community with every intent to represent YOU, the residents of the District. I don't solicit endorsements from other politicians, PACs or big business. I’m born and raised right here in East County. I graduated from Mt Miguel High School and attended college locally. I have spent my entire adult life serving the citizens of East County as a Deputy Sheriff from 1980 to 2012 before Honorably Retiring. My family and I are fully vested in this community, enjoy living here and know this area very well. I’m a common sense individual with an excellent ability to think things through, ask the pertinent questions and find the needed answers. My Type A personality drives me to research all things I do not understand and follow up until I receive the right answer and support we need. I ask for your support in this election.
State of the District
Our District, once a powerful and well respected District throughout the County and even the State, with valuable employees, has fallen on hard times, resulting in sweeping changes.
In 2012, as an effort to combat a growing deficit, the Board of Directors opted to contract with CalFire. This was to be a 5 year pact. All firefighters were transferred to CalFire and became State employees. Dispatching was moved from Heartland Dispatch to CalFire’s dispatch center on Jamacha.
The current board, on a 4-3 vote, voted to terminate the CalFire contract early. Today, they are awaiting a decision from CalFire for the exact date of transition, meaning this could happen anytime before July 2017.
So where do we go from here? There are nine people running for 4 positions. Four are supported by the old San Miguel Firefighters and four are supported by the CalFire Union, 2881. I’m pretty independent on this one and so will DEMAND THIS ISSUE IS RESOLVED IN THE BEST INTEREST OF OUR DISTRICT.
