West Fargo has started their nationwide search for a new Police Chief. Good luck finding a qualified applicant willing to take the position. I think that they have forgotten about an insignificant little invention called the internet. What happened in West Fargo most certainly did not stay in West Fargo.
The Mayor was asked why he didn't honor his promise of a public hearing to allow the citizens of West Fargo input into the [Mike] Reitan suspension. He claimed he didn't remember saying that. Not only did he say it but he said it on more than one occasion — after the suspension and at the Commission meeting on Jan 16. If his memory is that bad maybe he shouldn't be in office.
Something stinks in West Fargo and it is not the lagoon. When I heard on the news that Mike Reitan had been suspended as Chief of Police, I went through the possibilities of what he could have done that was so egregious that he would lose his job over it and came up blank.
