Recently there has been remarks that Jim White, if elected mayor, would terminate our chief of police.
I have known Jim White over a year and worked closely with him when he was coordinator of the Volunteers in Action. During this time, he has always spoken very highly of the chief. In fact, when he decided to run for office, he went and talked it over with the chief because he did not want a conflict of interest.
The bottom line is, during the time I have known Jim White, I never heard him say anything about replacing the chief, but praised him and the department for outstanding performance and high morale.
