Candia selectman says board tried to save chief from embarrassment
"With Depuy out, I didn't think it would be fair to be embarrassed by a 2-2 vote. (McGillen) has a right to speak as he did, as far as that night goes. I am not against Mike, but I had to battle with him (in the past) over things. We'll see what happens," Kelley said.
"I knew right off that some board members don't want a new police officer. They feel the town is doing fine without it," Kelley said.
She said she has never supported hiring a new officer to replace the one who left.
"I can make the stats show anything I want also," McGillen said previously. "And the number one deterrent to crime is when criminals see a police presence."
"We told him to interview candidates, not to hire them. The way the board took it is that Mike told this guy that he was basically hired when that wasn't the case," Kelley said.
