Anyone else miss Wade Harper yet? I can’t believe I just wrote that.

Since the election it seems like crime has gone up, homicides are trending up, a ton of assaults and robbery. This is the most unsafe I have felt in the community in a long time. Our mayor has done next to nothing as crime trends upward. Maybe its time for the Mayor to stop micromanaging everyone and give PD its sergeant request.

Harper was the easy scapegoat for residents to place blame. Curious why Wright is getting a pass? Its a logical question to the haters of the community.

He is trying to put out fires but only causing more of them. He needs to delegate but seems to not know how.

Getting rid of the city manager and looking to hire a new police chief are big steps in my book.

Can we at least give Wright a chance?

You already have a chief! No need to look there.
