He quit because he wanted to spend more time with his family! Yeah right Rahm forced him out because he won't go along with closing fire-houses and cutting firemen he already closed Police stations and refuses to hire any Policemen even being almost 5000 short! Rahm is nothing but a liar and con man, where is all the tax dollars going? Somebody has to pay for his G8 and NATO summit for the Politicans, Canada spent 800 million Rahm says Chitcago will spend 65 million!

So the Hero really didnt want to spend time with his family ,he just didnt have the heart for the upcoming fight.He just hit the bricks,nice.If the guy was so Stand Up,why didnt he say I am leaving because this mayor wants to gut the department. No he took care of number 1 HIMSELF..Oh and by the way his position on G8 NSTO was Its a CPD issue not a CFD issue,,See you Mr Wonderful

Is there any doubt that the jagoff mayor forced him out?

Happy for the Commissioner . I hope.that Carol Stream's FD becomes stronger and better. There gain, our loss.

SAD BUT TRUE said...

Ass-Hoff said he was retiring to "spend more time with his family." Then all the CFD buttkissers and Hoff the Hero-worshippers said, no, he's leaving because of the cuts to CFD. But Hoff denied all that! So what was the truth?

I'll tell you the truth. This jagoff made a deal to get his 6 figure pension and then go after another one out in the suburbs.

This is why Illinois is broke! Bureaucrats stealing money! And before you jump to his defense, how many of you will get a deal like this? What bullshit!

Political hack

If he was as you claim, he would have stayed on an been a yes man for Rahm. I don't know him personally but I have been at fires (inside the fire building while it was still going) and turn around and guess who was inside? Hoff. Plus he was at the 75th st building collapse within 10 minutes of it going down. He was the one that found Corey. I know cuz I was there. SOOOO - if you're gonna talk crap look in the mirror first. He has more balls than most people. Our loss is Carol Stream's gain. Best wishes Chief!

Truth is - Promotional eligibilty list came out to test for the position of Battalion Chief.
There was not enough minorities on the list. The preachers got a hold of the list - and Called Jessie Jackson...who else.
JJ called Hoff. Told Hoff to put more minorities on the list. Hoff told him to Fuck off.
JJ called Rahm - threatened marches and boycotts - Rahm sided with JJ!!! Rahm called Hoff. Hoff said no fucking way. Rahm pressed him... Hoff resigned.
End of a great era...fucked up by them again.
Wish the news would pick this up...but I'm sure it would never come out. Expose JJ for the racist he really is!!

So why didn't Hoff tell it like it was. He was stepping down anyways.WTF he quit at a time when some balls are needed.I don't blame the man for telling rham to GFHS, but Christ, don't use the Family as a Human Shield.I have heard nothing but good in regards to this man, but call a spade a spade.
Good Luck Chief/Commissioner Hoff.

Military people are heroes not a fire fighter

Military people are coward butchers who kill innocent muslims for their JEWISH masters like Rahm Emanuel who is the son of a JEWISH terrorist.

These big shots never say "fuck you" on the way out. They always leave for health issues, family reasons or to seek a better offer. If he told Rahm to kiss his ass on he way out, sure he'd feel good about it and then the next job wouldn't take him. Would YOU hire someone that just told their old boss "fuck you", publicly on the way out? No, you wouldn't. Just because you've got balls doesn't mean you have to think with them all the time.

Some of you guys just gotta be pissed off or you're not happy.

So much for spending time with the family.

Innocent Muslims! Besides cock what the fuck you smoking asshole!! You liberal cock sucker

doesn't hoff have kids who are cfd firefighters...it's one thing to tell the boss to fuck off and resign to allegedly spend more time with family; it's another for hoff to blow up rahm and openly shit on his kid's future...it's clear why he resigned...it's clear why he now has another job...hoff is a victim of white racism...

I wish he would have. But when has the press ever covered a story like that? When have we ever won in the press with a story like that?
It's always about race and the loud ouths always win. The "white" people don't stick together and are afraid to speak about race. Whereas "black" people are the first to use that and god forbid you call them on it... JJ and a couple hundred jagoffs show up on your front lawn.... Not worth it...

I know it sucks...trust me. He was going to retire about 3 years ago for legitimate family reasons but stuck it out and was promoted.

We all wish he would have called him on it...but you also can't question the Rahm-father...

Good for Bob Hoff and a great thing for the Carol Stream Fire Dept! A great guy who went out on his own terms. An 18 hour, 24/7 job in a big city under Rahm or an 8-10 hr job with shared accountability in the suburbs working under another great guy AND having more time to spend with his family? Not a tough decision!

Sounds like someone is just a fireman and is to stupid to get promoted !!!!

If people would put the effort they put into bitching about things and put it towards there jobs and not be so worried about what other people do we would all be better off. The cry babies that complain about what everyone else is doing wrong are the same ones that will never amount to anything. If you owned and ran a business would you let your employees run your business? No, you would do what seems to be the best for your company. There is a lot of behind the scene bullshit that cry babies know nothing about.
