I could not believe what I was hearing when I was told that Mr. Flynn had suspended our Chief of Police. The more research I did, the more I realized that Mr. Flynn is not qualified to be the city manager, his work history relfects a person that "jumped" from job to job. And why would that be? Was it, Don, you quit or we fire you???? Chief Merkley has been 110% devoted to every person that comes into Gold Beach. He has worked countless unpaid hours, risked his life for people that hate him & has always been honest, sincere and dedicated. Gold Beach City Council, WHERE ARE YOU??? You have the ability to prevent further damage by Mr. Flynn. Can't anyone have enough backbone to put Mr. Flynn where he belongs? And bring back the outstanding Chief of Police!!!!!!
