Councilmen Bob Rickman and Steve Abercrombie, I want to thank you for standing up for the residents of Tracy at (the Tuesday, Jan. 18, City Council) meeting. You did an excellent job of holding the police chief accountable and letting the city manager know that his attempts to protect her from scrutiny will not be allowed.
Mayor Brent Ives, Councilmen Mike Maciel and Bob Elliott, I believe I speak for hundreds of Tracy’s residents when I say the current police chief and city manager are not doing very well as public servants. The city manager continually tries to protect the police chief from public criticism, and he has taken the position that he is not accountable for her behavior.
As you know, he answers to you, and you answer to the voters. So please remember that his inaction will reflect on you, as well.
As a citizen, I believe I speak for many when I say we are tired of your inconsistency in holding the city manager and police chief accountable! Continually turning your head when city employees are not performing their duties shows a lack of concern, on your part, for the safety and prosperity of the residents of Tracy.
