Paid for by Southwest Ambulance?

The newest campaign signs decorating the street corners for Linda Abbott, Dave Crozier, Les Presmyk and Ben Cooper all say "Paid for by Southwest Ambulance."  Now, that’s odd.  What have the incumbents done for Southwest Ambulance to cause them to be so generous to their campaigns?

Coincidentally, on tonight’s 2/24/2011 Council Meeting agenda is this:  Agenda Item #9 is to "consider approval of extension of two contracts:  1) Ambulance Transportation Services agreement with Southwest Ambulance.  2) Advanced Life Support Labor Services agreement  with Southwest Ambulance.

I heard through the grapevine that a citizen noticed this rather unusual detail, and the item has been pulled from the agenda, until after the election.
