Fire union honcho comments on chief’s imminent departure

As reported in today’s paper, Stockton Fire Chief Jeff Piechura soon will be leaving for another job in parts unknown. As the story mentioned, top officials from the Stockton Professional Firefighters Association did not respond to requests for a comment yesterday ahead of our deadline.

But at 10:58 last night, union president Greg Biddle sent this email:

“Sorry for the delay in getting back to you today. I was on duty and it was pretty busy today. In regards to the resignation of Chief Piechura, the Local is looking forward to working with his replacement and hopes that an individual with strong leadership abilities will be selected to take over as Chief of the Fire Department.  This change should prove to be positive for our members and for the citizens of Stockton as well.”
