Firefighters Union Wants Mayor Nutter to Resign

This morning Local Union 22 called another press conference to reiterate its desire to have Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers resign for alleged mistakes during the handling of the Kensington warehouse fire that took the lives of two firefighters. At this press conference, though, the union also called for the resignation of Mayor Nutter for lying to help Ayers cover his tracks. Mayor Nutter’s office issued a response saying that Local 22 was dishonoring the fallen firefighters and that their real issue is over a contract. [Fox 29]
