Finally, there are grownups at the helm of Kensington’s Police Protection and Community Services District.
Voters in the town should keep them there by re-electing Director Rachelle Sherris-Watt; electing software developer Christopher Deppe, who was appointed about a year ago to a board vacancy, to a full term; and choosing financial advisor Mike Logan for the third seat on the Nov. 6 ballot.
It took years to oust the dysfunctional former board majority that presided over scandals, mismanagement of town finances, intimidation of dissenting board members, systemic secrecy and police retaliation against residents who speak up.
The new board majority of the past two years has brought in a new administrator, a former city manager who has run the district like a professional organization.
Finally, the district has a five-year financial forecast. There is honest and open discussion about serious unfunded liabilities for workers’ retirement plans. Conversation at board meetings is civil. The district has raised enough money to earthquake retrofit the community center. And no cops have lost their guns during encounters with prostitutes in Nevada.
It’s hard to imagine that Kensington residents would want to return to the chaos of just a few years ago. Yet there’s a slate of three other candidates aligned with the leaders of the past. They didn’t even bother to show up to answer our questions about their candidacies.
This shouldn’t be a close call for voters. Sherris-Watt, Deppe and Logan are the candidates for voters who want to keep moving forward and leave Kensington’s troubled past behind.
