So, in this roundtable edition, we’re asking you to pitch yourself for the spot. Surely you have to have some notion of what the job entails as well as how you plan to fix all of the nation’s fire problems. It’s not like it’s a leaky oil rig or a war or two. Seriously though, join in and have your say. Express what your platform or first year’s agenda would be and list three priorities you would take on. Remember, the USFA isn’t just about firefighters and line of duty deaths.

Send your submissions or post locations to Backstep by 20 June 2010. The 4th edition will be published Monday, 21 June. We know it’s a close deadline but the vacancy won’t last forever.

Erik, first off, I apologize for the delayed response. I'll keep this short and simple. I think I would have done the same thing as you. I'm not much for what some would consider calling a transitional attack, but in this case, certainly it seems to apply. Call it what you will, if the first…
