Dear Participant:

My name is Rufus Jackson and I am currently a Deputy Fire Chief with Newark Fire Division. I am currently a student enrolled in the Rutgers University’s Certified Public Management Course.

You have been chosen to participate in my research because of your unique positions within your organizations. Your thoughts and opinions are a very important aspect of my research project.
