Subject: Designating Portion of SR 1008 as James C. Cutchall Memorial Highway
On Friday, June 12th, I plan to introduce legislation that will designate a portion of State Route 1008 in Fayetteville, Franklin County, as the James C. Cutchall Memorial Highway.

James Cutchall was a Fayetteville Fire Chief who was tragically shot and killed on July 27, 1977 when he arrived at the scene of a blaze. The fire was purposefully started by his killer who then ambushed the responding firefighters, killing Chief Cutchall.

Chief Cutchall, only 33 years of age at the time of his death, was widely regarded as one of the most outstanding fire chiefs in the nation. He was known for using one saying in his speeches, “To be a volunteer firefighter and make an error is human. To be a volunteer firefighter and worry about those errors is compassion. To be a volunteer firefighter and do something about those errors is professionalism.”

I ask for your support and invite you to join me in cosponsoring this legislation honoring an outstanding individual in both his field and his community by designating a section of State Route 1008 in his name.

Introduced as HB1342
