Police come by

The Stockton Police Officers Association stopped in this afternoon for a meeting with The Record’s editorial board, and to start off Officer Steve Leonesio, the union president, said he was optimistic for a good outcome in the concessions dispute (the administration wants $6.5 million in concessions from police; the union is interested in much less) between the union and City Hall.

 

“We’re optimistic that things will get resolved,” he said. “The bottom line is that we’re hoping there are some changes at City Hall.”

 

And by changes he meant a change of title for Gordon Palmer, from city manager to unemployed.

 

It is not a new position for the police union. Leonesio called publicly for Palmer’s firing months ago. But since the recent failure of the administration/union talks and the issuance of 55 layoff notices to police officers, the union’s call for Palmer’s ouster looks more central to its stand.
