In the last week, questions have begun to swirl about not only LaFollette’s new police chief but also how he ended up in the position.
For a brief moment, I don’t think the people squeezed into the council chambers last Tuesday night believed James Lynch had just nabbed the top cop spot for the city.
In fact, I don’t think he initially trusted his own ears.
There was no discussion between council members about the applicants, their credentials or anything for that matter. In fact, entire council appeared disengaged from the process at times.
