Lukey is standing behind his decision to demote Cmdr. McNeilley even though a court reinstated her to her former post.
Documents revealed in that hearing show that former chief Dom Costa said that Dennis Regan on several occasions ordered him to promote his live in girlfriend’s brother.
Regan denies this.
As far as Mr. Regan’s actions were concerned, the mayor said it would be improper for anyone in the mayor’s office to influence police decisions, but he’s not convinced Mr. Regan did anything wrong.
“There was no rule broken, no law broken,” he said. “If anything, maybe bad judgment was used.”
“I stand here proudly [believing] that I acted appropriately,” Mr. Ravenstahl said.
Dude, you’ve nothing to be “proud” of. What the hell kind of descriptor is that for how you feel about demoting someone?
That’s a frickin’ Dilbert strip if I’ve ever heard one.
Pointy haired boss: I fired his ass. I’m very proud of me today.
Talk about ammo for the other mayoral candidates. Serious ammo. Machine gun ammo.
