City Council action questioned

Local government elections are just around the corner and many issues on decisions made during officials' previous terms have been put on the back burner.

One decision made by Mayor Rodrigo Ramon with the help of all the city councilmen still puzzles me. What were the terms and conditions of the removal of Chief of Police Carlos Pena? At first, I thought that maybe something serious had happened to warrant his demotion; but as time went by nothing came of why this happened.

Since most of these people are seeking re-election, I believe it's in their best interest to come public with why they made this decision. Everyone in public service should be held accountable for decisions that affect the safety of us all.
