I wish to extend my congratulations to Montpelier Fire Chief Bob Gowans on his 40-plus years of service. I was honored to work with him during my whole career. We started full time together (well, technically, I had 11 days seniority, but who quibbles?) and we shared many experiences along the way. I wish him and the Montpelier Fire Department continued success serving the residents of Montpelier in the years to come.
