HOPEWELL -- City Council wants a co-interim police chief to run the force while a six-month search gets under way for a permanent chief.
The council recommendation, on a 6-1 vote, comes as the existing interim police chief withdrew his application for the position.
Interim Police Chief Jim Stanley told council last night that he didn't want the job because of growing interference from outside bodies on his department.
"After much consideration and evaluation of the current intensity of the interference from political entities within city government and the commonwealth's attorney's office, I have concluded that it is unlikely that I would have the ability to function as the police chief," Stanley said in a memo to council.
The cry is political correctness and have to take a shot before returning fire. hogwash. Hope-less is the dog-patch of the old time comics.
