I've known Larry Bartel for 22 years. Bartel responds to multiple tasks in an efficient manner. He has the ability to separate needs vs. wants, enabling outcomes to be reached in a fair manner. He is a team player, dependable, responsible, reasonable, self-motivated and a leader. One of his finest attributes is his ability to work with many different personalities for a common cause.
Bartel has been active in fire service for 33 years. For 27 of those, he was the chief fire officer. He offers the right balance of experience, training and personal characteristics to make a positive impact as commissioner for Clark County Fire and Rescue, Position 5.
