Losing John Schlemmer as fire chief a real blow to Center Harbor

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I was very saddened to hear about the resignation of Chief John Schlmmer from the Center Harbor Fire Department due to political reasons. As a member of the Fire Department, I was always truly impressed with the commitment and dedication with which Chief Schlemmer carried out his job as chief. He always had the best interest of the town's citizens and members of the department at heart an I think that he did a great ob of meeting everyone's needs. His dedication to the job went far about what was expected, and he could always be counted on in any situation.

I am currently enrolled in medical school outside of the state so I am not able to attend the meetings in order to support him in person. Despite my geographical absence, I wanted to formally voice my support for him. I think that losing John Schlemmer as chief of the department would be a very great loss to the town of Center Harbor, as well as its members, and I hope that this situation does not have to resolve itself with his permanent resignation.
