New Police Chief Sworn In

Our new Chief of Police, Lisa Womack, was sworn in today. A large crowd of police, city staff and media witnessed the brief ceremony. City manager, Femi Folarin, Mayor Schock and intermin Chief Robert Beeter spoke and city clerk, Loni Mecum, performed the swearing in. Femi kept the process moving. He said he wanted the chief to get to work.

Womack was selected from 50 applicants from across the country. Recently, she served as police chief of Sugar Land, Texas, a fast growing city outside of Houston, with a population of nearly 71,000.

Chief Womack and family, we welcome yaw'll to our city.

Hey! I thought I was the only one with a blog about Elgin. Mine is hosted by blogger too at toomuchinternet.
Just to show that I'm here not just to pimp my blog I also saw this post about a guy who wants to do an article about people who blog about Local HAPPENINGS. You may want to look into it.
