Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Boise Kimber (born c. 1959) is an American Baptist minister of the First Calvary Baptist Church in New Haven, CT. He is also a commissioner of the New Haven Fire Department, the president of the Greater New Haven Clergy Association, and a community activist. He received a wide media attention after being mentioned in connection with the US Supreme Court case Ricci v. DeStefano.Kimber started preaching when he was 15 years old in Phenix City, Alabama. He moved to New Haven in 1983 and became a political powerbroker. In 1996, Kimber was convicted of stealing nearly $4,000 from an elderly woman, but did not receive jail time. The New Haven Mayor John DeStefano named Kimber a chairman of the fire commission in 2002, but he had to step down from the chairmanship amid a controversy for telling firefighters that people with "too many vowels" in their names might not be hired by the fire department.show more
