Hey Chief, here's your hat, what's your hurry?

Good luck Chief! I hope the PTSD from the stupidity of the last few months doesn't haunt your dreams for long. Just remember yours was a political position in the end, and when you are forced to play with other politico's it's akin to being thrown into a pit of vipers.

Enjoy retirement or find a City who would love to have someone with your experience and record.

Sorry I didn't see this post sooner. After treating employees so poorly over the years and going after them with your little minions I am very glad to see that what goes around, comes around. Enjoy your forced retirement - you will be lucky to get a job involving any public trust
