Yesterday, I had the first of many open conversations with the commissioned and civilian employees of our Department. I was extremely happy with the standing room only turn out and sincerely hope future meetings are just as successful. With many changes on the horizon, it is imperative that we continue to communicate regularly and address concerns employees may have about the unknown. The questions raised at our open forum were thoughtful and covered a broad range of topics from morale to future insurance coverage. I was reassured that we have some of the most dedicated and passionate employees working for our Department and am excited to be a part of such a great organization. Working together, we have the opportunity to shape our future and make positive changes…I truly believe that future will be great.
