WASHINGTON, D.C. 20001
May 6, 2002
Honorable Anthony A. Williams
Dear Mayor Williams:
We, the undersigned members of the Council of the District of Columbia, ("Council"), call upon you to request the resignation of Ronnie Few, Fire Chief of the D.C. Fire Department ("DCFD"). The basis for this action includes the resume inaccuracies of Chief Few and his top assistants, lack of forthrightness with the Council, low morale in the Fire Department, the need for a concise plan to refurbish the city's firehouses, and the various other programmatic problems within the Department. Among other recurring problems, there have been appalling systemic issues concerning communications, equipment, the lack of HAZMAT and disaster training, and Chief Few's misrepresentation of the progress of DCFD to the Council during budget hearings.
We are calling upon you to restore public confidence in DCFD and its leadership by taking this action for the reasons cited.
