So, if, no when, Timmy gets the job, can Bob Sr come back and run for Mayor?
Bob could never appoint his first son Jr as Chief, per city charter.
But, I believe he could run for office and if he wins, Timmy could also remain as Chief.
Interesting.......

Ok. It's official. Chief Timmy Lowery.
That sure was a fast, nationwide search, like MOST reputable, professional police departments do!

Mayor Schnieder has now paid off his promise to Mayor Lowery to make his son Chief. Schnieder had to sell out to Lowery in the campaign for his endorsement and a huge campaign donation.
Schnieder just closed the books on that debt.

We now have a new Andy of Mayberry.

This was a deal between Devils.
And, Kellet with North County Labor has gotten paid back as well, both of his nephews, the Fagans, have received promotions for their Lowery loyalty. The Florissant Police is now run by the Lowery's, the Fagans(Kellet) and North County Labor.
There will be lots of looking the other way.
so sad

This deal was made when Lowery agreed not to run, in return for Schneider promoting his son to chief. Lowery could not do it because of nepotism laws. Schneider forced Karabus out and surprise surprise, one day later promotes Lowerys son.
Did not know about Kellet, but now that makes sense too. I wondered how the younger Fagan got promoted to Lt, I guess he will be Captain as soon as Tim Lowerys job opens up. Sad day for Florissant.

If you caught the news this evening you would have been able to see FPD Lt Fagan of the major case squad deliver a very emotional comentary dealing with the Glendale suicide/murder. It really tugged at my heart strings"Not really",the phony bled right through, from soon to be Capt Fagan. He,the Lowerys,the Kellets,et al,have no conscience or emotional feelings. They're all in it for themselves and the graft they can get their filthy hands on. Ah but the good folks of FloMo will buy the goods as they always do. You had a chance to kick Schneider out of the way and put in a decent mayor in the last election but you drank the "KOOL ADE" instead. As Mr T was want to say,"Pity the fools".

Since you seem to be the political expert (not really) who in the hell would have been the "decent mayor" to "put it"?

The Florissant PD reminds me of the movie Goodfellas. When Tommy was going to be a made man he said" Nothing to worry about, everything is gonna be beautiful" Sound familiar.One of the SGTS up there always said the Lowerys and Fagans were the"Family". Sounds right to me. Both on Major case squad. it turns my stomach!!! I don't know how they can look in the mirror or at each other with a straight face. Disgusting.

more than a little corruption in the Flor Police dept. What sickens me, is Karabas has sat on his hands, doing nothing, building a second pension in Florissant and take a paycheck for looking the other way. I hope he prays for forgiveness every morning, because what he has been doing is no different than stealing from tax payers.
The FBI, the Justice Dept, the attorney general should all be investigating this cess pool.

Did it really come as a surprize to anyone that Timmy Lowery would be the next Chief? I have never seen so much favortism in one area. This is what we are using our tax money for. It reminds me of a private social club, if you are not a member, you don't get in. This crap needs to be addressed, either at council meetings or the state. Just like on And Griffith, Barney was made a deputy, because he was Andy's cousin and Timmy is being made chief, because Bob is Timmy's dad. And Fagan needs to cry over his consciounce for trying to show he cares.(NOT) What a discrace these fools have made Florissant. It's on;y going to get worse!

Will Tim Lowery have to move to Florissant or at least move back across the river to Florissant or someplace closer than O'Fallon? Isn't the chief supposed to be able to be on the scene of a crime or a community emergency quickly? I bet Timmy stays in O'Fallon, drive the sh*t out of a city paid police car running a 70 or 80 mile round trip daily? The council should give him enough money to buy a smart car and one tank of gas per week.

The 37 percent of suckers that voted Thomas Peeeeeee Schneider in office deserve everything this bung hole does. RIP Old Florissant.

First they promote Timmy to Major, a position no one else ever held except for his big Bro. Now they have made him Assistant Chief, a position NO ONE has ever held. Way to go Florisaant. Still a dirty as ever.

And he has been getting a raise in pay with each promotion...what about the rest of us???

Who would you want to be police chief?

Obviously the majority wanted Schneider, he got elected and if you all didn't vote you have no say in what happens.

How many of you malcontents actually do anything to change things? Do you go to citizen's meetings? Do/did you campaign for someone you felt was better qualified as mayor? Of course not, all you do is moan and groan.

As far as the anon employee, what are you doing in Columbia? And if you do work for the city and dislike it so much I suggest you get another job that you do like.

People who just whine and do nothing to alleviate a situation are as bad as the people they are making accusations about.
