Mike Anderson wasted no time.
Elected mayor Monday night, the veteran Lafayette council member on Tuesday morning had penned a letter to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors urging them to reject a plan to close ConFire Station 16 in Lafayette among four stations due for streamlining.
"Closure of Station 16 would needlessly endanger lives, and because there are other workable alternatives, it is totally and completely unacceptable," wrote Anderson.
An alternative Anderson mentions is staffing ConFire's three stations in Lafayette with two paramedic-firefighters each.
