McKenna is good choice for chief
Mike McKenna makes sense for Baldwin City. The newly named police chief is the right choice to restore confidence in the Baldwin City Police Department, which everyone involved wants.
McKenna has a wealth of law enforcement experience. He also wants to p ut that experience to work for the people of Baldwin City. That's a good combination.
City officials and community members who were involved with the process to fill the police chief vacancy left by Steve Butell's resignation did an admirable job. They w ere helped by an outstanding field of candidates to choose from, but their thoroughness in the subsequent interview and selection processes was outstanding.
McKenna will have an open door policy, will listen to the community and be open with communicatio n. Couple that with his experience and Baldwin has just what it wants, and needs, in a police chief.
It will be a new year with a new chief. Let's get behind him and the entire police department and make this new beginning work.on
