Stuck with Hargadine... For Now

Unfortunate news from Missouri:
Iowa City Police Chief Sam Hargadine won’t be taking a similar position with the St. Charles, Mo., Police Department.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that St. Charles City Council agreed to hire Randy McKinley, who is chief of the Bloomington, Ill. Police Department.

Hargadine previously said he was interested in the position in St. Charles so he could live closer to family in the St. Louis area.
I think we should support Sam in his goal to spend more time with family, and our goals to get a justice center built, though we should do it a different way.

While I'm at it, can't folks who are all amped up about red light cameras and chickens do something like recruit some credible - important qualifier there, credible - candidates to run against Dickens, Mims and Champion next year?

I've heard talk of the red light people trying to come up with a supervisor's candidate, as many of them also happen to be 'No' Justice Center folks. Seems unlikely now with two active Democrats going for it.
