Coworker who filed complaint against Mosinee fire officials speaks out


The day after records were released regarding complaints against former Mosinee Fire Chief Doug Jennings and former Deputy Chief Emily Dobeck, one person who wrote a complaint to the mayor is speaking out.

"I just felt in my heart I had to do something about it," said the source, who asked to remain anonymous because she's completing her fire training at a different department. 

In a letter to the mayor she wrote last year, she claimed Jennings and Dobeck singled her out to the point where she felt she was forced to resign. She said that was very difficult for her because of how passionate she is about firefighting. 

"I've been wanting to do this ever since I was a kid, I just always loved public safety," she said.

Though she said she wishes the best for them, she's disappointed in her former leaders.

"We're public safety people, like we're supposed to have the public's trust and everything," she said. "And when you're doing things that are inappropriate and whatever, you know, it just kind of makes us all look bad and I don't want that."

Her claims are similar to other allegations uncovered in the newly released files. 

We have not yet heard back from Jennings or Dobeck for comment.
