As Public Safety Commissioner I hope to repair and restore relationships that have been damaged by the current City Council.
This city needs less drama and more thoughtful leadership. I have watched with increasing concern the exodus of some of our most valued employees from City Hall. Nowhere is this trend more alarming than in the police department where most of the leadership has either resigned, taken early retirement, or announced their early retirement.
Working as a Team
In order to carry out local police work, we depend upon a close working relationship with the District Attorney (DA) who must prosecute our cases. I have worked extensively with prosecutors over my long career. I feel confident that I can rebuild our relationship with the DA despite the unhelpful conflict that has come to dominate the city’s relationship with that office.
Homelessness is a growing problem in our city. The reality is that addressing homelessness has a law enforcement element, a mental health element, and a social work element. Over emphasizing any of these will undermine any effort to successfully deal with this issue.

Tim sets the record straight on his opponent's untruthful attack on his exemplary record.
