Mr. Mayor - you were exactly right in seeking his resignation.

An honest and honorable man would have resigned when he took that other job. We need not only a full-time police chief, but one who has the capability to provide leadership of the police dept.

Chief Fox never demonstrated any leadership skill.

Finally this Chicago P.D lovin idiot and politician has been exposed. Good move Mayor. YOU have qualified people already within the Dolton P.D.who are well known in Dolton and respected within the ranks who can do the job! This clown spent more time at the bar in a town just west of Dolton. No more C.P.D collecting another free pension please. These types are only going to wreck the dept.

FINALLY

There are so many good officers; why not pick a Police Chief among them ... one who is not corrupt, but has the well being of the officers and town as a priority. If the consultant mentioned above has the initials R.J. - send him packing - he wasn't a good officer then and he's a terrible consultant now - as for Maxine, the only thing good about her is her gold jewelry - she has the mouth of a truckdriver (sorry, no disrespect to the truck drivers of America) and the brain of a gnat (well maybe the gnat has a bigger brain)... anyway, it's time Dolton got rid of the deadwood on its payroll...

It's about time. Maybe the Mayor should look into how Fox was making $130,000.00 a year when his ordinance salary was $96,000.00

Pleasse you all ac like the Mayor didn't know all this remember Shaw appointed him come on now who's writng this mess RonnieLewis's fan club. What police officer is qualified to be a police chief. It better ot be "Lacy' whose had complaints ON HIM for years. i HEARD SOMEONE WAS CONSIDERING HIM.He might be a changed officer but not Police Chief. Who else. They must have new personnel on the Police force. Come on people let's get real we need to clean the whole village adminstration out TOP to Bottom. Shaw can't be blamed for this mess. As for as the tavern down the street when did the Present Mayor stop going down there because everytime I went there he was sitting there with Shaw. If you Lewisnites are going to talk BE REAL

Not defending him buit Fox wa not sitting in these clubs alone. other village officials were sitting there also. Its obvious you were there a lot. do you work for the village.How many daysdo any of the employees work? I know you see the majority of them sneaking around on the cout courting. We can say anything we want to the Village officials could have fired The chief anytime he wanted to. Why didnt he? We ned to hold our Vilage Officials accountable. Maybe he should hire his daughter for top dollar to be a watch dog at the village like he did at the Dorchester. go Mayor Lewis. Did anyone chech those credentials?(Ha)

I don't believe for one minute the Mayor didn't know the former Chief had received other employment. Please! His an official of Cook County and knows Stroger professionally/personally! PLEASE! The internet has nothing on the local grapevine. As soon as Fox received the petition at the Examiners office. I'm sure phones were ringing. The mayor knew and apparently had no problem with the arrangement until the story broke out to the general public and he knew he had to save face.

If you believe the Mayor didn't know the former Chief had received that position, then there's a functioning society on Pluto!

Tod Stroger appointed Chief Fox CHIEF OF INVESTIGATIONS for the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office. Fox didn't the solve murders in Dolton. He only hid murders and shootings from the people. Now he is chief of investigations in the coroner's office.

Smartest move made by the mayor, considering this chump never solved anything in Dolton. This guy is a political friend of Stroger and that azz hole William Beavers. The suburbs are being ran into the ground by theses Chicago pimp/politicians that are getting a Chicago P.D. pension and free money, chief jobs. Dolton,watch out for the next move with these pimps!!!!!!!!!!

Get wise like SOME of the other suburbs are doing and STOP hiring these retired azz holes from Chicago. They are destroying those communities,bringing in unqualified people in top positions,as political favors. Fox was never qualified for the job. He was nothing more than a college boy from Cook County Corrections. Check out his background!!!!!!
