Make Ellington police chief

Editor:

To me, it’s common sense to appoint a law enforcement officer and head of our town’s police department who is not only qualified and trained in all aspects — from patrol, to state and federal evidence handling — but also a person who has proven they treat citizens with respect, and are quick to weed out any and all undesirables who they feel do not do the badge justice.

The person I’m speaking of is not only from the community, but has served this community, both county and town, for more than 25 years.

To me, it is only reasonable, as well as common sense, to keep acting Farmville Police Chief Andy Ellington in this position.
