For Immediate Release —
We respect the dedication and hard work that all firefighters do to save lives. That said, Firefighters Union President Seth Andregg is incorrect when he says that Issue 64 is a “path to uninterrupted emergency care in Lakewood.” Andregg made this statement as part of a recent endorsement of voting For 64.
The master agreement specifically states that “the need for emergency services may change with time” and will be subject to “ongoing evaluation.” This language allows the Cleveland Clinic to close Lakewood’s ER at any time, as they have already done in Sagamore Hills just last year.
In contrast to the statement by Andregg, the Ohio division of National Nurses United has endorsed voting against Issue 64.
