Where have all the fire chiefs gone? Long time passing.

Chief William Garrett gone in less than a year. Eden Freeman gets a $25,000 bonus in July and is gone by March. What is it about Winchester City Government then renders it unable to keep top-level management for any meaningful amount of time?

By all accounts Chief Garrett was loved by his firefighters. Accolades abound on a Facebook page entitled “Support Chief Garrett.” Eden Freeman received a $25,000 retention bonus in July. The bonus was part of the employment contract with City Council in an attempt to slow the constant turnover in the City Manager’s position.

What do you think is going on? What do you think Winchester can do differently to slow the turnover? We need to hear from you.
