Tracy's interim police chief, Rick Golphin, named to replace Chief David Krauss, isn't sitting still with his "interim" title. He's tossed his hat into the ring for the permanent position.
It'd be nice to have a home-grown candidate get the nod for the job — someone who knows the character and characters of the city, someone with an intimite knowledge of the needs and challenges before even sitting behind the chief's desk.
But folks from all across the country have likely put in their resumes. We'll just have to wait and see who the city leadership select.
Meanwhile, Stockton is having its own police chief fun, with commentary courtesy of venerable Record columnist Mike Fitzgerald.
