I wonder how many people in Eureka believe they had some say in the choice and the hiring of the new Eureka Police Chief?
According to Lorna Rodriguez for the Times-Standard newspaper: "The Eureka City Council on Tuesday (tomorrow) will vote on approving the hiring of Eureka's new police chief."
She continues: "San Diego Police Department Capt. Andrew G. Mills is expected to start leading the Eureka Police Department on Nov. 4, according to a staff report. He will be paid $142,500 annually."
"The city has searched for a new chief since June 2011, when former City Manager David Tyson fired Garr Nielsen without cause. Nielsen was popular with the public, but met strong resistance from some within the department."
The last police chief, the one before and after Murl Harpham "was popular with the public, but met strong resistance from some within the department." That should tell you something about this new guy, specially when Murl Harpham gives his blessings. I'd say he deserves what he gets and so do the people of Euraka.
