Was his mother hispanic by chance?

He was tired of being Chief in Aurora and not being paid for it. Everyone knows that Powell was not doing the job. Wonder what Weisner will do now. Everyone is jumping ship.

I will wait until he actually leaves and they change the locks, before posting my comments. He might try to come back!

They can have him. And his cheesy moustache.

Sorry to see him go. He was accessible to the residents of Aurora, he would actually "get back to you"-by phone or email. He listened and helped with the problem.

"GOOD LUCK" IN YOUR NEW CAREER!

Yes, 11:29p, he does have that latino look. Kinda strange with a last name of Anderson.

I lived in Campton Hills area....who could blame Greg for wanting to make that change.

It is a completely different type of assignment, with completely different types of people.

The crime rate there is minimal.

Big loss for Aurora, Big win for Anderson!

Again, Aurora is left short-changed; and we are losing a pretty good Deputy Chief. Oh well, now lets see which one of Weisners campaign supporters and buddies will get the job now.

So what if we lose this Barney Fife. This chicken-sh** cop moves to an all white community where the worst crime they have is littering.

Good for Aurora, bad for Campton Hills. Maybe now Aurora can promote Greg Thomas to the position he deserves.

I'm pulling for badge 214 to move up.

Yeah!

Just my two cents worth...

I met Anderson a couple of years ago at a function. I had an issue and he had me call him the next day. He took care of my problem and has been very responsive whenever I called him.

I always felt he was very genuine and what I appreciated most was that he was not afraid to tell me the truth, even when I did not want to hear it.

I hate to see him go.

What you and greg did to help you with your "problem" is your private business, fella.

Look at all the titles and positions this guy had. I would presume that he has accomplished a great deal in all that time. Funny, I don't see anything about what he has actually done in that article. Success is about performance, not position.

Lose the moustache, Baba Looey.

He has no loyalty to Auora, only himself. He left to try private ventures, but came back because he couldn't make it in the real world.
He only thrives in a suction filled arena!

Wow! Cut the guy a break. He is entitled to look for other opportunitys as you are. He has served his time well and this is the inevitable next step. As far as who goes next that's anybodys guess

No breaks here! The average guy couldn't leave in the middle of a career, then come back and get back in the fast track, again, w/o suction. What happened to all the guys that stayed and did their time? Why should they be overlooked? Loyalty has to play heavily in the mix.

Maybe his whole family will be at this ceremony. If he dosn't like this job can he come back again. Decite will be his downfall he's not as bright as it says on paper.
