This is typical of May Dale Janway, Mayor of Carlsbad, NM.. He does not have a clue as to what is going on or how to run a city. Even his answer(s) is representative of his lack of leadership. Not quit sure what is up with this dude. I hope that the State AG can fix this problem.

Mayor janway has done a lot for the city. This is just a minor thing he has done. You know good and well that the cops themselves has had some people slide by without giving a ticket. As a matter of fact, I know a few people that cops had let them slide by and just gave them a warning . Several times!

Agreed if an officer lets it slide, he has an insight of the person since they are right there with the offender. But, for the mayor to step in and play like he is a Governor or President and pardon an offender, then that pretty much slaps the face of an officer. They then think what's the use, if the mayor is going butt in and let them off.
Would you like it if you were an officer?
I have no respect for this mayor at all!

The previous comments must be from persons under 40. Back in the 70's and 80's, officers were ordered not to give any citations to certain Carlsbad individuals, including the the Mayor. Grow up people, this is nothing new and I doubt Mayor Janway has even done half of what our young police officers have dreamed up about him. As in all jobs, there are gray areas along with the black and white.

Unions suck and only harbor lazy ass I don't want to work entitlement babies. How many unsoiled
Murders do we have? How many dopers go free cause of Henry? How dirty was Dave Edmonson? The mayor has done more for this city than any other mayor. Sounds like Forrest is jealous. Oh yea and how much kickback did Forest get from Sanchez to run his drugs until he got caught? Get a life popo and do your jobs!!

If any of these accusations are correct about the police and the mayor, then the whole system is corrupt! From the mayors office to the police force.

If it wasn't for our mayor, none of the things coming into Carlsbad would be here. As to our last mayor, would not let nothing come to Carlsbad . He has also attended a lot of events, as to our last mayor did not.

I'm no fan of Janway since I got tar-feathered on topix for trying to clear things up to the public in regards to the Air-route discussion. I can walk away with my head even keeled at people's acrimony - knowing I'd rather be ME than a commissioner of some sort.

But I ain't no fan of unions. And I ain't no fan of cops. So, when a UNION of COPS (all 66!)vote UNANIMOUSELY against someone.... I know something's fishy.

Full of shit that's what I think. I know dale janway personally and he is an older man with much more than his fair share on his shoulders. The cops need to give him a break seriously
