Long live the chief

Dear Editor:

It would be a huge loss to Basalt and the community without Roderick O’Connor being our chief of police! If you really know this man, you cannot help but think that if more police and people were as compassionate, caring and thinking as he is, the world would actually be a better place. I hope this matter is looked into very deeply because if it is, I know Roderick will remain the chief, and justice will have been served.
