    We see that the Pueblo Civil Service Commission sees things a little clearer than apparently either the City Manager or Council . . They found Deputy Chief McLachlan not guilty of any thing deserving of a five day suspension without pay . . Apparently "Interim" Chief Velez didn't state that the information he gave McLachlan was confidential or, it wasn't . .

    And, come to find out, McLachlan wasn't the only one in the room when Velez told him. The whole command staff was there, according to the paper this morning . .

    Begs to question someone there . . Why did Velez single out McLachlan?

    So do you all still think Velez was a good choice?

    I don't believe anyone posting in this thread said much in Velez' defense . .

    I'm trying to remember what it was that people were saying when I first brought this up. I remember stating that I didn't think it was such a good idea for our City Manager to appoint his friend - seems to me there were some people who had a little more faith in Jerry Pacheco's decision than I had, but I don't remember if those were forum comments or comments spoken to me when I discussed this verbally with a few people. I guess that means I'm losing my marbles. lol

    So, let's see a show of hands here.

    Was it because he's friends with Jerry?

    Or no?

    I think it was because he was part of the consultant company that the city paid all of the money to.

    Y'kno, this may have opened a can of worms for the city and their human resources people . .

    Think about it . .
