Randy Burns, who ran unsuccessfully for Lincoln Unified school board in 2010, spoke a little while ago against a city plan to place advertising on fire trucks.
“I think this could create animosity between other businesses in the city (and those that buy ads),” Burns said. “Is there nothing sacred? The next thing we’ll have is ads for bail bondsmen on police cars.”
He became emotional, nearly breaking into tears, and said fire and police stand for “pride, honor, sacrifice.” He added, “These things are not for sale.”
