Some of us would listen if you had one little clue what you talk about .... how many hours do firfighters (not fireMAN, time to join the 21st century) in the other 20 cities work? How many hours a week do OCFD personnel work? Do you even know? Bet you don't ...... Don't let the FACTS get in the way of your BS.

Why does everything come back to the fire department? I thought this thread was about the Gov. Christie coming to Ocean City. Why are you so bitter??? Were you passed over for a city job???

Bill, that could be said about any politician, that is what all government workers receive and they dont have to be a politician. I dont get your point. I am a so called "real worker" in the private sector and pay into health care and will get a pension. Is it the unions that you are talking about?
