HON. ED PERLMUTTER
in the House of Representatives
Friday, October 4, 2019
Mr. PERLMUTTER. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize and applaud
Pam Feely for receiving the 2019 Board Member of the Year Award from
the West Metro Fire Protection District.
Pam has served on the Board of Directors of the West Metro Fire
Protection District for 10 years. During her tenure, she has provided
strong leadership through a number of significant changes, including a
transition in Fire Chiefs.
During the District’s merger with the Wheat Ridge Fire Protection
District in 2016, Pam served as the lead negotiator and initiated the
idea of including former Wheat Ridge Board members on the Board for
West Metro. Pam was key to ensuring a smooth transition and successful
merger of the two districts for the benefit of the local community. In
addition, Pam was instrumental in her foresight of the impact of the
Gallagher Amendment on the financial sustainability of the District.
She worked to identify a solution to a major challenge facing the
District and, in 2018, helped lead the District’s efforts in a
successful campaign to stabilize the District’s budget.
From understanding the importance of the District and its board
members within the community to working to ensure all District staff
feels appreciated and valued, Pam’s excellent leadership and ongoing
dedication is invaluable to the District and the community it serves. I
extend my deepest thanks and appreciation to Pam Feely for her service
to the West Metro Fire Protection District and to our local community.
Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition.
