Dan For Chief

United States

#1 May 25, 2010
It would be a wise decision for the Mayor and Councilmen to make Dan Silman a good offer for the vacant chief of police position. He is honest, trustworthy, and competent. Dan is trusted and respected and could effectively protect and serve Richwood through community policing.

The officer that you have seen at the Watergate has been working on the security plan for Saturdays concert. I guess you did not notice the many Sheriffs cars or the Troopers that have been here doing the same. We have two officers left and they are working 12 hour shifts 7 days a week. Cut them some slack.

Kudos to the council that stood up to McClung for not hiring Shane Boggs of Craigsville without doing a proper background check on him. What is wrong with Lois Schoolcraft, Mike Little and Ronnie Bragg? Richwood isn't that desperate to hire someone in such a hurry. They want to hire someone living outside of the city limits as the new police chief with no prior experience. Why wasn't the council informed for the reason Boggs wasn't hired before a few years ago when he applied to be a police officer in Richwood, what is hidden in his background that kept him from being hired then? Why would Boggs leave a $48,000.00 yearly income at the prison to take a huge pay cut to be a police chief? What is he hiding?

How come the other 9 applicants weren't named or discussed for the council today? What is McClung, Schoolcraft, Little and Bragg hiding? Their wreckless regard for the residents safety is absurd and unforgiving. There are qualified applicants that do live in the city limits, why were they dismissed so rapidly and quietly by John McClung?

Well this is a glowing recommendation, you don't even know who you or I am speaking of, you've managed to slap every competent Richwood applicant in the face and all you can say is he's a good guy, you must be Mayor John McClung or his flunkies, Mike Little or Ronnie Bragg.

Why don't you ask those that set in the public section. Shane Boggs offered to awnser any question the members had. He was a very impressive speaker he even teaches communication skills for the DOJ. Maybe he can teach the concil members. Maybe they should point out that explained his reason for the pay cut and it comes down to the fact that he's tired of all the drugs in the jr. high his kids going to. This was another example of everyone that's is suppose to speak out for Richwood fighting each other instead of doing what's best for us.

Shane Boggs is a graduate of the class of 2000 from Richwood High School. He grew up around here and if he had something in his past to hide, living in a small town like we do, we would already known about it. The only time in his life that he didn't live here was when he was an active duty soldier in our armed forces. How dare anyone get on here and say that he has alterior motives. He loves this town and the people in it. He loves this country and put his life on the line by going to war and fighting for our freedom and defending our children, parents, grandparents and even the people on here determined to defile his good name all because they have a beef with the mayor. I have known Shane all my life and am extremely proud of him and his accomplishments as a human being and as a FEDERAL OFFICER! I feel that the members of the council that are voting against him as chief should pull their heads out of there but put their differences behind them and do what is right for the town for once!

i am not saying anything about boggs. but he is a baby sitter for fed inmates thats all he is a corrections officer just like the officers at. crj he has no arrest powers off fed property.as for drugs in schools thats what the deputys work there for. there are other people who applied for the chiefs job who are trained and certified by the w.v state police academy, the mayor won,t hire cogar because he don,t like him because he is hard on d.u.i drivers and is afraid he will be next.there are more qualified people than boggs the mayor said he did a back ground check on boggs bull crap if did he would have heard from texas boggs has a record there you have other officers ready to go to work but mc clung refuses. i hear he put boggs to work today as sargent after the council said no.boggs has no police training at all whitney should have been sargent not boggs the council is trying to put certified people in there but the mayor wants to put untrained people in there and get the city in a law suite

This is the Mayors qualifications for the position of Chief.The successful applicant will meet the following requirements,

High School Diploma or equivalent

Graduate W.Va State Police Academy

Five years law enforcement experience with at least three (3) in administration

Excellent problem-solving, decision making abd organizational skills

Fiscal responsibility and bugdet management capabilities

Subject to call at any time and possible night shift duty.

Does Boggs meet all of these qualifications? Was he WV State Police certified while being a prison guard? Can he do the fiscal and budget?
Tell us mayor, why are you so adament about hiring this guy? We want to know why when there are more qualified applicants standing by to go to work, that are WV State Police certified. Cogar has more quailifications that anyone else there. But yet you wont even consider him as chief. Morris and Cogar cleaned up this town,with the other officers help. Now with them gone things will go right back to where they were before they came.

Maybe because someone else is capable of defusing a situation instead of escalating it in order to hide behind their badge, to use physical force, and to feed their ego/inferiority complex. Were looking for heros not corrupt zeros. Everyone knows this city is far from clean. It will take someone who is trusted and respected to truly clean this city up. Dan is the man for the job. He is not hard to find. Make him a good offer Mayor and Councilmen and the city will be cleaned up.

dan for chief. dan is a great guy and a good officer. but i can,t see him giving up what he has to come back to richwood. because he could not work for mc clung. why do you think chief morris left mc clung and fitzpatrick have drained this town. richwood may not make it much longer.and you may not like cogar but he got the job done just look at the bars and streets now they are packed the drugs are moving again.
