On Sept. 12, the city council of Rhome decided that the lives of its residents are not even worth $35,000 a year, when they voted to eliminate the paid first responder position.
I urge each and every resident and business of Rhome to take a stand and speak up. You can make your voice heard by signing the petition located at Big Z and Tater Junction.
I also encourage you to attend the next council meeting to be held 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10, at Rhome City Hall, and let the council know how important, necessary and beneficial this position is to the residents of Rhome, whom they represent. Thank you.
