Rich Schwegel, St. Joseph
Thank you for the excellent editorial on Chief Joel Klein. Those were my feelings exactly.
For the past few years, I worked closely with Joel to assure the safety and security of the thousands of people who attend the Joetown Rocks celebration. He was always ready to help, professional and easy to work with.
It’s sad someone chose the means they did to settle whatever differences they had with Joel. It’s a sad time for St. Joseph. I’ll miss Joel.
