Mike Leach and AFD

"Whoa!," you say. "What does the embattled former coach of the Red Raiders have to do with AFD?"

Technically, nothing. But the Statesman did a great editorial this past Saturday, January 2 about Mike Leach that has some applicability to AFD. Regardless of the circumstances and the allegations, the bottom line is that Leach was entrusted with the care of those who play for him and he violated that trust. As a member of the Austin Fire Department, you are likewise entrusted with the care of those you serve--the taxpayers--and those who serve you--your employees. We should all take a lesson from Tech's playbook and remember that.
