Sounds like a longshot. Can't think of anything he did in Long Beach or Oakland to distinguish himself -- both cities were, and are, crime-ridden snake pits.

Batt's is a charmer and after reading the news piece and what SJ is looking for in mending fences, the planets are in alignment for him.

I observed Batts in person on one occasion before he made Chief in LB and this guy is very impressve .. observed him inneracting with some people who could do nothing for him and found him very genuine .. another factor, is that he is right out of Central Casting, and I mean this in a good way .. this factor can sway a City Council

My bet is that he will win the job in San Jose and for all we know he may have been courted for the position .. remember what happen in LBC, on the most recent appointment of the Chief .. the CM and Mayor prevailed with the outside candidate who was holding superior credentials and saavy
