Fire union polls 400 voters

Stockton’s fire union recently wrapped up a telephone poll of about 400 voters in the city as it gears up its campaign against proposed City Charter amendments that would alter fire chief hiring and change how labor disputes are resolved.

Dustin DeRollo, a political strategist and public relations consultant hired by the fire union, wouldn’t disclose the specific questions people were asked, but generally, he said the questions centered on the proposed charter amendments and “how voters perceive the direction the city is going.”

“Based on our results, in terms of our campaign, we think it’s a winnable campaign,” he said of the looming ballot measure fight. (The fire union is expecting to raise up to $130,000 to aid the effort). “Overall, I think there’s concerns by the residents with the direction the council’s going.”
