Dear Minnesota State Fire Department Association Members:

Many of you may have heard that our former treasurer Tony Bronk was recently charged for allegedly stealing $188,000 from our organization over the past four years.

We were shocked and angered by this unfortunate situation. I want to assure you that we value the trust you put in this organization. We believe in holding people accountable for their actions. We demand that the best and most reliable staff serves on the MSFDA Board of Directors so we can continue representing Minnesota firefighters and fire departments.   

The MSFDA is financially sound. Here is what we have already done and what we will do in the coming days and weeks to ensure the funds you provide us are never mishandled again:

·         We have overhauled our financial policies and procedures.
·         We will institute  more checks and balances in our financial systems.
·         We will work with an external audit firm to ensure we have proper controls in place.

Please contact us if you would like more details about how we will ensure best practices in financial dealings are always followed.

Thank you for your continued support during this difficult situation. We are putting together a great conference for you June 11-13 in St. Cloud. We look forward to seeing you there.


Mark Rosenblum
MSFDA President
