Man, 18, wants to be on NY police commission - WSJ.com

Work and Family Safe

I grew up in Port and know both Paul Faulk and Jimmy Duncan. I'm not endorsing either one but I really think its an only in Long Island story.

At only 18, he knows the right trough to stick his snoot in to feed ... Long Island civil service!

I bet the idea of bossing his parents (who are both PW cops) is appealing to him too!

For those who may not be aware, Port Washington is a special district police district in that it is organized similar to a village police district but without a village, and the residents of the district elect the commissioner for that district.

The Port Washington Special Police District may be the only one of its kind in New York State.

Or, he feels he can contribute something...unlike just posting on the internet.

I'm all for the idea of approaching a management job from an "outsider" perspective, however, I think an 18 year old is not mature enough to make the types of responsible decisions necessary for a commissioner position. If we look at the private sector, no large company in their right mind would choose an 18 year old to run their company. Why would Port Washington taxpayers want any different for their police force?

For the same reason that Fire Districts need a Board of Commissioners even though, they too, have a chief and the same reason that school districts need a Board of Trustees even though they have a superintendent.

He probably knows how to work a computer, fashion an email and create a spreadsheet which makes him more qualified than a large percentage of LI civil service administrators.

Oh please! You crack me up! Contribute something! I'll agree with woody516 on the likelihood of a competent contribution from that kid as PC of PW.

PS: And who is posting right behind me ... LOL!
