Back on March 31, Mayor Ed Lee told reporters that he would pick a new police chief in two more weeks. Well, it’s about that time, but on Monday, Lee gave a familiar answer.
“Police chief is a couple weeks away,” Lee said. “I did meet with each of the candidates, and last week I met with the commission to go over their reasons, and then I have another set of interviews and I’ll make a final decision and announcement in a couple weeks.”
Lee seems satisfied with the three choices he has been handed by the Police Commission, so at the very least, Lee indicated that he wouldn’t go back to the commission for another crop of candidates.
