Profession:Retired Fire Chief - Strategic Planning Consultant

 

Kim Raddatz has over 34 years of well-documented successes in service to East County and it residents. His fire service career started with the Lakeside Fire Protection district in 1979. As he rapidly promoted through the ranks to Fire Chief, Kim’s leadership and commitment to better serve the community never wavered. He has had the privilege in leading organizations like the Coronado and Salinas Fire Departments.

Throughout his years with Lakeside Fire Department, Kim trained numerous firefighters at the east county fire training facility commonly known as Heartland Fire Academy. Many of those firefighters still work for San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District today or have promoted to Fire Chiefs in many East County Departments

In 2003, as a fire Division Chief for Coronado, Kim was assigned to the state command team to establish how to best track and monitor the assignments of East County fire resources during the Cedar Fire.

As the Zone Coordinator of East County, Chief Raddatz was elected by his peers to be responsible for the day-to-day operations for all local fire department resources during large emergency incidents. This assignment lasted 4 years.

During the 2007 fires in San Diego County, Chief Raddatz was requested to be assigned to the San Diego County Emergency Operations Center to coordinate the local fire resources and give daily briefings to the media, elected officials, and the public. As the Fire Chief of two agencies, he has had a great deal of experience at public events and with the media.

Kim Raddatz is also well recognized for his expertise in facilitating the development of mission/vision statements, conducting organizational analysis, and jump-starting strategic planning for public and non-profit organizations. He believes these processes help to build a more cohesive work environment and to grow an organization to its full potential. A few organizations with whom Kim has worked in this capacity include the California State Firefighters’ Association, Coronado Fire Department, and the Salinas Fire Dept.

Chief Raddatz’s education consists of dual degrees in business administration and management. He is also a state certified instructor for fire leadership and management courses and holds numerous other fire service certifications.

Though retired from the fire service, he now is pursuing another way to help the community he has called home since 1987. Kim is seeking to be elected as a Board of Director for the San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District. He believes that organizational transparency, local control, and fiscal responsibility will ensure the success of San Miguel Fire Department’s transition back to a stand-alone department. His experience, successes, and respect among local fire personnel will make Kim Raddatz a great director for the San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District during these tough times.

Help me elect this strong candidate to the San Miguel Fire Board.

Board of Directors

KIM RADDATZ
Retired Fire Chief/Strategic Planning Consultant

A public service organization’s success is a direct reflection of how transparent and accountable it is to the public and all associated with it. My goal is to build consensus and empower all stakeholders of the San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District.

As a Fire Chief for the cities of Coronado and Salinas, I balanced budgets and expenditures that never exceeded revenue. After 34 years in the fire service, including 22 with neighboring Lakeside Fire Protection District, I enjoy a wide-range of state and national agency contacts.

I possess strong public relations skills and am experienced in working with diverse community groups and organizations, city councils, boards of directors, and labor groups. The communication skills and experiences I garnered will be assets to our fire protection district. With a dual degree in Business Administration and Management, years of line-command experience, and a solid human resources background, I bring both education and real-world experience to the board.

My wife, a teacher for La Mesa-Spring Valley Unified School District, and I have lived in this district for 19 years. I look forward to giving back to our community. Thank you for your vote.

EVERETT EVLETH
AGE: 47
Local Businessman

I have lived Rancho San Diego for 20 years. My wife grew up here and our daughters have attended local public schools and participated in numerous sports and community programs. I have been a volunteer coach for 15 years including recreation, travel and high school levels. Being active in our Community has increased my awareness of how taxpayer dollars are spent, including for fire protection.

The San Miguel District has faced its largest challenge over the last two years. It is now in the process of transitioning back from a State-run agency to a locally controlled agency. How tax dollars are spent is crucial to the protection and safety of our citizens. Bringing back fire awareness programs and the hiring of our locally trained firefighters is so important.

I received my degree in Business Administration from Loyola Marymount University. I have served on boards at all levels and know how to listen and communicate effectively. I am running for the fire board to ensure this Community receives the highest quality of emergency and fire protection. My business experience will bring a strong presence to the Board in efficiently managing your tax dollars. Thank you for the opportunity to ask for your vote!

DAVE RICKARDS
AGE: 55
Retired Fire Captain/Paramedic

This past year, I voted to purchase two replacement front line fire engines saving taxpayers $350,000. I successfully rallied other board members to vote on replacing the aging Bostonia fire station with funds saved through the CAL FIRE Cooperative Agreement. The regional plan tied to this purchase will significantly enhance Fire and EMS capabilities in that community. My priorities are to provide cost effective emergency services and equipping our firefighters to do their job.

I am proud to have served as your Director of the San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District. A major change recently occurred with a vote to return to a stand-alone fire district. I voted No. The CAL FIRE contract was cut short based on a poorly constructed, in-house micro study. We have already seen significant increases of hundreds of thousands of dollars- well beyond the study’s projections. Transitional costs and future liabilities are unknown. The Board majority rejected my call for an outside independent financial analysis to compare the CAL FIRE contract. Our taxpayers deserve better.

Please vote for me, Dave Rickards.

Proud to have the endorsements of Supervisor Dianne Jacob and Senator Joel Anderson.

  • Return San Miguel Fire District to a sound financial footing by continuing the current contract with Cal Fire. A contract that saved the taxpayers millions, we went from a three year $5,000,000 budget shortfall to a 3-year $3,000,000 budget SURPLUS.
  • To continue to provided a world-class fire department with reliable response times and highly-trained emergency service personnel.
  • Members of the old Firefighters union have supported all the Board members who voted to cancel the current Cal Fire contract. That vote increases their hourly pay by 28.5%, they don't have your best interests in mind.

Our San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District is in trouble. I believe that together we can do more to protect taxpayers and have an extraordinary emergency response system in place.

During my 31-year career as a Registered Civil Engineer and as board president of the San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District and other non-profit organizations, my job required squeezing maximum value out of every taxpayer dollar. We need board members with good judgment and proven budget management experience. I have the experience to reverse this new trend of reckless spending.

Four years ago we were facing a financial crisis. The board contracted with CAL FIRE, saving the taxpayers millions, as we went from a 3-year $5,000,000 budget shortfall to a 2-1/2 year $3,000,000 budget surplus. At the same time, we provided a world-class fire department with reliable response times and highly-trained emergency service personnel. In an irresponsible 4-3 vote, the current board used a flawed study to support a stand-alone district with hidden costs and infrastructure needs that will significantly increase the funding of maintaining necessary services. The taxpayer gets stuck with the bill. 
 
Together, we can once again put the San Miguel Consolidated Fire Protection District on sound financial footing. I would appreciate your vote for William Kiel

Board of Directors

RICHARD "RICK" J. AUGUSTINE
Businessman/Healthcare Advocate

I served 12 years with San Miguel Fire as a Director. I grew up in the East County attending Helix High, Grossmont College and San Diego State. 2008/2009 tax revenues began dropping for the district and continued causing major cutbacks. The Board of Directors voted 7/0 to enter into a contract with CalFire to save the district from possible bankruptcy.

CalFire has not only saved the district over $3 million, but has supplied additional services at no cost to the district. The previous board set aside funds not only purchase new fire trucks but fund the new Station 19 in Bostonia. The current board will have to raid these funds meant to fund other equipment and needed station improvements in order to go back to the old system. Leaving CalFire puts you at risk! Why should district residents give up the superior service they are getting from CalFire? The current board failed to do a well thought out financial analysis by an independent auditor. The savings they projected are almost gone, and unfunded liabilities are not clearly thought out.

Endorsed by Senator Joel Anderson, Supervisor Dianne Jacob and Skyline Pastor Jim Garlow.

KARRIE JOHNSTON
Retired Deputy Sheriff

For 12 years I have been an advocate for the District’s Constituents. SMGFD is returning to a stand alone Fire District . returning local control to the District. Although not an easy vote, it was the correct vote. Politics cannot be allowed to impede future decisions. I have, and will continue to ensure the financial stability of our Department. Over the next couple of year’s, decisions to solidify the stability of our Department will be voted on. I have proven the fortitude to speak for what’s moral and best for you and, not be swayed by what’s the popular or easy vote. I will continue to dig through the bureaucracy to get the facts. I am not intimidated by those who use their power to threaten results.

Our District and employees are rebuilding and committed. They are the best and we will succeed. Those who dispute this have alternative motives. They are entitled to their opinions but lack facts which they base their accusations on.

We are also dealing with a boundary interpretation that has affected Paramedic response in our zone. Some of you have response times that have increased from 10 minutes to 30 minutes ;this must be corrected!
