Jason Capps passed the interview for police officer with flying colors. He has the qualifications, but wasn't hired. Why not Milstead?

Because Milstead likes to run things his way... which means don't buck the man and things wlll go well for you. If you buck him... forget it! And let's not forget he and his co-hort Betsy Gregson make the final decisions together, so don't buck her either.

Well to answer that question truthfully....I would have to give Mr. Capps credit for even reapplying because the odds were strongly against him. First of all, Milstead has made it very clear to many people that he does not like Capps personally or professionally. Therefore, he did not stand a chance on getting re-hired with the city. Secondly, even though Mr. Capps was a good officer at one time, he totally screwed that up before he was asked to resign (terminated). Milstead has this "I am way better than anyone else attitude". And certainly as long as we have IGNORANT people leading the city hall, we will have mishaps and corruption. So to all of you that have been victimized by Milstead or any other of the ridiculus city management, my heart goes out to you. If he would throw away the arogance, stupidity and superman ego for just a second and stop being so selfish and self-centered he might see that there have been some really good, hard working employees and leaders at the city hall that he has pushed out due to lack of backbone and fear of losing a place to go sleep and eat during the day until his wife or mother gets home to baby him!

you hit the nail on the head!! I commend you for being honest and telling it like it is. Maybe the citizens of Huntington should exercise their right to voice their concerns at the council meetings and to whomever else will listen and do something about those idiots running city hall.

It seems that City Hall is not the only corrupt division of the city. Seems that the Fire Department is also corrupt. Word is that it is ok to drink alcohol and do drugs while at the station. Also, if you need some fuel to get you by, just go on by and one of the higher ups will top you off. And if you have a criminal record, it's just dandy by them. One of their members got arrested the other day for burglary of a house. These are the people that save and protect your lives and property.

Oh Capps had ptential and was doing a good job for a while. Then he started losing it. If you lived in the city when capps worked there you should have seen that he quit working long before he was asked to resign

First of all your an idiot to even believe that rediculous horse hockey....2nd to post such bull.
I am a member there and have been off and on for over 18 years and have never seen nor heard such nonsense that's rediculous. And I strongly suggest if you think such is going on then by all means come on by anytime for an extended visit to investigate for yourselves, do not blame the fire department and it's dedicated members for your own poor parenting skills...I am going to assume your Kin to the young man we took the marijuana from and then notified the parents where he then "claimed" a member gave him that trash. It's funny how you all knock the fire department down....and yet do nothing to support the ones who put there life in jeparody to protect yours or save your "baby" the "dog" if you want changes then become an active member and make a difference otherwise keep your rediculous comments to yourselves...

Personally, I liked Jason.
I also liked David West.
They were both very visible in the city and as far as I know were reasonable.
