Dear City Manager, Dear CouncilMembers,
I hope someone is asking how we can choose the right police chief for the job, if we haven’t even determined whether to outsource the HB police dept?
Isnt one related to the other?
How deep into the Chief’s selection process are we?
Don’t you think the public deserves an answer as to where the cities decision makers stand on outsourcing the HBPD; and why they have taken their respective positions.
How long was the chief out on medical leave?
It’s not like the city didn’t have time to evaluate the pros and cons of HBPD outsourcing before entering into the chief’s hiring process.
And if the city has made a decision on outsourcing, one way or another, and we have not heard any informed public comment on this; can we really say things are changing for the better?
If citizens have not heard, in OPEN SESSION, the pro’s the cons, the opinions, considerations and decision points of council and city manager and they have not heard our informed public comment, how can that be the good governance and with the transparency the city needs.
Also don’t you think the public deserves an analysis of the dismal crime statistics cited in the recent HB police association flyer?
Were those statistics real or were they just a method to establish a negotiating position.
My idea is that someone in authority respond substantively to these issues.
Thanks Anthony Higgins
