Palombo did his job


To the Editor:

The City of Cranston has been well served by its police chief Col. Marco Palombo.

Col. Palombo has been a tireless and dedicated public servant since he became a police officer nearly three decades ago. His department has been scandal-free, save the recent “ticketgate” episode resulting from the isolated actions of a few officers, and he has disciplined several within the ranks for inappropriate behavior.

He has been even-handed, honest and diligent. That he became a political scapegoat tells us much about gubernatorial candidate Fung’s lack of character.

When you serve at the appointment of the Mayor you can go anytime! He knew this!

Of course he did. But that does not diminish the fact that a loyal and accomplished police chief was thrown under the bus -- at great cost to Cranston taxpayers -- to serve the political needs of a floundering mayor seeking higher office. The Chief was a straight shooter; the Mayor i s not.
