No decision made on Holyoke Fire Lieutenant

Opinion to be made soon on the matter

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Holyoke Fire Commission met on Friday night to discuss a petition filed by residents, who oppose Firefighter Timothy Leary’s promotion to Provisional Lieutenant.

Commissioner Yasser Menwer told 22News the Commission did not make a decision, but will issue an opinion soon on the matter.

Leary was caught on camera last year, while off duty, calling City Councilor Anthony Soto a racially offensive term.
