VEMS Leader Says Board is 'Dysfunctional,' Should be Replaced

Director, from Oxford, airs dirty laundry about ambulance group to the Valley Indy Sentinel.

The group's logo says United to Serve, but the executive director of the Valley Emergency Medical Services says the group's board of directors is anything but united. 

Robert Pettinella, an Oxford resident, says the board should be replaced. 

He told the Valley Independent Sentinel that the regional paramedic service for Oxford, Ansonia, Derby, Seymour and Shelton has a dysfunctional board consisting of members who have conflicts of interest and frequently engage in in-fighting.

He tells the Sentinel the main problem witht VEMS is that its board consists of people from Valley ambulance services, some of whom want to replace VEMS with their own, respective town-based ambulance service.

No doubt! Taxpayers come first not personal gripes and motivations.
