Because he was appointed by the Mayor, couldn't he have been suspended and we would've been exempt from payment of an appointed deputy chief salary ? Seems by Mayor's demotion action he goes back to union contract protection he didn't deserve by nature of " an appointed deputy position" ?

yea. smartest thing was to promote from within. But, I've heard they have much better candidates in house who were bypassed in the name of politics as usual.

So you think the Chief is a stand up guy? Sure was when he cheated with the poc ff wasn't he? Doesn't the City have rules about supervisors dating subordinates? Can't wait until they break up and she files sexual harassment charges against the City.
