Just say "NO!" to the mayor

I have watched with much interest with how the mayor wants to handle the situation with the hiring of the police chief.
The Civil Service Commission has, and “should” continue to have the role in deciding who will hold that position. The only reason I can see that the mayor is so bent on being the sole decider is to put one of his cronies in that position. That should not be allowed to happen!
I have no respect for Mayor Christopherson, as “mayor.” I have found that he talks out of both sides of his mouth and accomplishes nothing! With that said, I certainly don’t feel like this is something he should be making any decisions on, or have any say in it whatsoever.
We need a police chief who has the knowledge and the experience to do what this area desperately needs, and one who knows how to accomplish that.
I certainly hope other voices will be raised and heard on this issue because it’s going to matter to all of us!
