Fired Up -- Mayor Slay Responds

Today on my KMOX show, Mayor Francis Slay responded to yesterday's interview with Chief Sherman George regarding the promotions controversy in the St. Louis Fire Department. I asked him whether he would fire the Chief for not issuing the promotions he thinks are overdue, whether there are outside forces (FIRE and Local 73) pressuring both of them to take their positions, and whether safety in the city has been compromised because of this situation.
