Is Hellwig's Year Up?
At my age, one always fears for signs of memory deterioration, so I looked it up on the blog and, for good measure, in the Courier News online archive to back up my news clip with a hand-written date. On March 21, 2008, Brandon Lausch reported that Public Safety Director Martin Hellwig had been appointed the day before as police director in acting capacity.
So either the mayor jumped the gun or the year is indeed up.
I used the search word "loggerheads" to retrieve the blog post and it also turned up a long-forgotten spat with Dan. Click here and scroll to trudge down memory lane.
The question of "acting" roles also made me realize that Dashield himself is overdue again in his dual role as city administrator and acting director of Administration, Finance, Health and Social Services. And so it goes.
