A handbill is circulating in the East Clinton Fire District that claims Robert Trzcinski would close down the East Clinton firehouse and leave the residents without fire protection. Trzcinski strongly denies that he harbors any such idea. He called the statement in the handbill “a lie. I never said anything like that. Quite the opposite, I said we need to enhance it…get more qualified people involved.”
Trzcinski has the backing of a group of resident property owners who seek changes in the way the commissioners have been doing business. Those changes do not include dissolution of the department. Trzcinski said he was a member of the West Clinton Firehouse No 2 and is an experienced fireman.
Trzcinski points out that the 2015 audit was completed by the firm of accountants and was delivered to the ECFD board of commissioners in June, but the commissioners have refused to release it.
The handbill bears he name of Dan Harkenrider who is running for fire commissioner against Trzcinski. The vote is tomorrow, Dec 13.
