Fire Chief/Councilman: Citizen activists say you can’t be both in Loomis, CA..

Ed Fletcher, Sacramento Bee:

A pair of Loomis residents has formally asked the California Attorney General’s Office to step in and remove Town Councilman Dave Wheeler from either his city post or from his paid role as the local fire chief.

Some residents have questioned since Wheeler’s November election whether being fire chief of the independent district – which overlaps part of Loomis – is incompatible with a Town Council seat.


The uproar is between a group of Loomis activists and Loomis fire chief and newly elected councilman Dave Wheeler.

“The voters selected me to represent them on the town council, and I’ll continue to do so,” Wheeler said.

The activist group filed a complaint with the attorney general alleging that under current law, Wheeler can’t hold both public positions.
