New Fire and Rescue Chief a Familiar Face
From today's Metro section:
Fairfax County yesterday named Ronald L. Mastin, the fire chief of Henrico County, to be the new chief of the Fairfax Fire and Rescue Department. Mastin, 53, was with the Fairfax department for 28 years, rising to the rank of deputy chief of operations, before leaving in 2001 to take over in Henrico, just outside Richmond. Mastin succeeds Michael Neuhard, who retired in February to become a deputy county administrator in Stafford County.
Mastin's appointment, announced by the Board of Supervisors after a national search, becomes effective June 3. His annual salary will be $160,000, Fairfax officials said.
