April 19, 1 Guest commentary North Collier fire district I have had the honor and pleasure of serving the North Naples, then the North Collier, fire districts for more than 26 years, the last seven as the fire chief.
However, when I read the guest commentary by fire Commissioner Richard Hoffman in the Thursday edition of the Naples Daily News, I felt no honor in an association with an elected official who would knowingly and intentionally offer false information as fact. I was appalled that an elected official would so blatantly Corkscrew commentary his constituents of the district that he serves in a transparent effort to set the political stage for his campaign against fellow commissioners also running for re-election.
I was an integral member of the North Naples-Big Corkscrew fire districts merger team and very involved in the process, both pre- and post-merger. I personally know how hard the district worked to ensure transparent financial reporting and to deal fairly with the cost to harmonize wage and benefits.
One of the main points of Hoffman's commentary was that the board had attempted to "reclassify or disguise" the cost to harmonize wages for the Big Corkscrew employees.
This planned cost, continuously acknowledged in the merger plan, was always to be funded solely by Big Corkscrew and not subject to the cost-sharing allocation method applied to the other expenses to operate the district.
Hoffman, who is a CPA and should have an understanding of basic financial statements, stated that this cost has now been charged to an unrelated account that "would not show up in the statement of the district's net position" and the cost would "fade into North Collier fire district's financial statements — out of sight, out of mind.
The costs are identified separately in the district's general fund financial statement so they can easily be referenced by the board and the public.
They are reported in just the same manner as all other wage and benefit expenses, and will show up in the statement of net position, contrary to Hoffman's assertion.
In fact, separating these costs out on their own budget line is the most transparent way to deal with them and provide verification to the board and the public that they are being itemized as promised.
From his statement that Big Corkscrew is deteriorating financially because reserves were used pre-merger and post-merger he neglects to note these were planned uses of reserves to his assertion that there isn't enough money to purchase replacement fire engines the purchase process for those engines has already been approvedHoffman is clearly trying to discredit his fellow commissioners whom he will be running against — without any consideration to the effect his actions have on the district he serves.
His representation that Big Corkscrew's financial position will decline to the point that North Naples "fire district" there is no North Naples fire district any more will have to support Big Corkscrew is without merit.
Five-year and year studies were done prior to the merger, and at no point in time does Big Corkscrew exhaust its reserves. Taking into account the fact that the financial condition of both the North Naples and the Big Corkscrew service delivery areas is even better than outlined in the plan, at this early stage, before the projected massive growth, is in contradiction with his assertion.
There are no "broken promises" or attempts to avoid transparency and camouflage the truth by his fellow commissioners. Readers should recognize this for what it is — an attempt to intentionally misrepresent financial facts and make outright false statements, all to the detriment of the district he was elected to serve, to gain a leg up in the coming election.
