“I am proud and honored to have been endorsed by the Professional Firefighters/Paramedics of Palm Beach County,” Ramiccio said.

“I will work hard to ensure that we retain our county fire rescue contract with the city so that the health and safety of our citizenry is never at risk,” said Ramiccio.

More than half of county’s fire-rescue employees earn more than $90,000

“The county fire-rescue department’s average base salary was $90,776 in 2010, and the average gross pay was $93,144. Those are averages for all of the department’s roughly 1,450 employees, from secretaries to the chief.”

“In comparison, the average salary for a firefighter in Florida is $50,010, according to the national Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s less than the post-probation entry-level pay of $52,119 for a Palm Beach County firefighter.”

“I will not fire the city manager without having worked with her for a minimum of three months. I will then evaluate her goals and objectives and make a careful decision then.”

Um, wouldn’t that take a vote by the Commission?

“Sell to FPL.”

Again, wouldn’t that require a vote by the Commission?

“Fees for Bryant Park are reasonable for the entertainment value they deliver. Depending on the event, I believe that fee agreements need to be fair and equitable to all involved.”

What amount of money did you personally make from Chamber sponsored events in Lake Worth and how much did the City receive?

“The CM should reduce her salary an show good faith and leadership by example. Many of our city employees made sacrifices. Those sacrifices should be shared at the top as well.”

During the economic downturn did you reduce your salary at the Chamber and reduce the percentage paid to you from the profits of events held on City owned property?
