Why are we, the public safety committee, letting someone outside our committee and the board make the decision who’s going to be on the panel for hiring the new police officer, and letting him travel, do paperwork, and get $25 an hour?

To me, we are putting other’s knowledge into what we, the public safety and board members, could figure out ourselves.
I am not the brightest bulb in society, but it didn’t take me long to figure out why they did not want me on the hiring committee; knowing my views on a full-time police chief, and knowing we had one that would have been perfect for the job, but they let go.
For that reason, and a couple more, I am done after being on the board for 17 years. I am not a fan any more.
