Light moments

Before we get to the meat of today’s arbitration testimony so far, a light item. Fire union lawyer Chris Platten just ended his cross-examination of Stockton’s interim CFO Bill Thomas.

Platten asked Thomas, who was a police officer many years ago in Wisconsin and Arizona, if he knew the similarities between police and firefighters.

“I’ve been out of law enforcement for so long …” Thomas said.

“I’ll tell you the answer,” Platten said. “They both want to be firefighters.”

Laughter around the table.
