“Serving the City of Fort Mitchell for 19 years, the past five as Fire Chief, has truly been a wonderful experience which has allowed me the opportunity to serve in various leadership roles while developing community-based programs with local organizations that will provide lasting benefits to our community well into the future,” said Fuller.
