APPOINT BILL QUIGLEY AS COHASSET'S POLICE CHIEF
A group of concerned citizens has launched a campaign urging the Board of Selectmen to approve the pending nomination of Bill Quigley for Police Chief in Cohasset. Bill has served Cohasset with distinction and integrity for eighteen years, starting as Animal Control Officer and working himself up to Lieutenant and Deputy Police Chief. Since May 2012 he has served as Acting Police Chief. By all accounts, Bill has done a great job in a very difficult and politically charged environment. He has the support of the members of the Police Department, almost all of the citizens of the Town, the regional police chiefs and the Norfolk County District Attorney. Bill has also received the support of the Cohasset Mariner in an editorial published in the August 30 edition. He also has the expressed public support of former selectmen who have worked with him: Gary Vanderweil, Ralph Dormitzer, Ted Carr, Leland Jenkins and Paul Carlson.
Bill does not just sit behind his desk and issue orders. He gets out and works with people. Many people have told us how he made a difference when they were having a difficult time. We believe Bill is highly qualified for the job. No outside candidate will have the in depth knowledge of Cohasset and the long standing respect of the residents. Cohasset should reward town employees who have demonstrated leadership skills. As former Selectman Chair Gary Vanderweil wrote: “Cohasset should be sticking with its winners. We should pay more heed to demonstrated capability and accomplishment, all of which is difficult to assess in an outsider."
Don't let politics interfere with our public safety. Please sign this petition to show your support for Bill Quigley and his promotion as Chief of the Cohasset Police Department. The appointment will be made official in September - we need as many signatures as possible! Please share this with your friends and neighbors.
