The late Retired Fire Chief Doug Mathis was one of the most influential and well known people in Sumter County. For years he fought for a new fire station. Anyone who knew him, and that was quite a lot of people, knew it was something he was passionate about. I believe that the new fire station in Sumter should be named the "Chief Doug Mathis Fire Station". If there is anyone in this town who deserves that honor, it was Chief Mathis. 

Growing up, he was one of my role models. He helped point me in the right direction in life and helped make me who I am today. Not only me, but many people in Sumter were influenced and guided by him. Whether it be Fire Fighters, service men, classic car enthusiast, people needing help from fires and accidents, or that 8 year old 1st grader, Chief Mathis was there to help. 

Please join me in signing this in hopes that Sumter County officials will make the right decision and commemorate Chief Doug Mathis by naming the new Fire Station after him. Thank you.
