The blog post I put up about Brad Zagone being appointed fire chief was hijacked by commenters talking about the Masons. That's okay, I let the comments flow pretty freely, and sometimes a blog ends up being about something entirely different than the subject that was posted.
In this case I want to clarify what I think.
I believe Mayor Walker made good appointments both in the police department with Shane McWilliams and in the Fire Department with Zagone.
Both are younger men and from what I can tell, very dedicated to their professsion. I don't think that they qualify as part of a 'good old boys' network.
Kudos to Mayor Walker on both of these key appointments.
