First off I know everyone is concerned about the marshal’s department — so are we.
As you may or may not know we thought we had a viable candidate a few months back. In fact we were quite excited to have this gentleman on board and had brought him here to finish up what we thought were a few formalities. Unfortunately for the candidate and for Green Mountain Falls, the candidate was not successful in completing all the tests required by El Paso County Sheriff’s office.
Now to some it may seem that we should just “do our own thing” and not worry about El Paso County. But in the bigger picture, it’s really important that we have a great working relationships with the Sheriff’s office as well as we want to have the MOST qualified candidate as we can possibly get.
It has taken some time. Too much time. But my hope is that in the long run we get the best qualified, best “fit” for Green Mountain Falls. Anything less does a disservice to the Town.
