Former Police Chief Honored by County

Mike Gallagher awards proclamation to Charles Goss on behalf of Cuyahoga County Council

 

Safety Director Charles Goss was honored by Cuyahoga County Monday night for his years of services as a Strongsville police officer.

County Councilman Mike Gallagher delivered a proclamation to Goss following his retirement as police chief.

"I really treat these (proclamations) almost like gold," Gallagher said. "They only go to people who truly should be recognized."

He said Goss "has touched lives in a community he has so proudly served" for 34 years.

"Charlie is a role model and mentor to many," Gallagher said.

Goss retired from the police department at the end of September and was subsequently appointed safety director by Mayor Tom Perciak.

HOW DOES THE MAYOR JUSTIFY CREATING JOB THAT HE WAS GETTING PAID $40,000 A YEAR FOR THE RETIRED POLICE CHIEF AND PAY HIM $100,000 A YEAR FOR THE SAME JOB AND THEN TURN AROUND AND ASK CITY WORKERS TO PAY MORE FOR HEALTH INSURANCE. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW OUR CITY ALLOWS THIS KIND OF SPENDING TO HAPPEN WHEN OUR CITY DEPARTMENT IS A VERY GOOD ONE AND DO THEIR JOBS VERY DELIGENTLY. THIS IS NOT CLEVELAND AND WE NEED TO SUPPORT OUR CITY WORKERS. SPEND THE RIGHT MONEY ON THE RIGHT PEOPLE AND NOT WORRY ABOUT ADDING MORE LANES TO ENTER OUR CITY. THE ROADS ARE WIDE ENOUGH!!!!!
