Mayoral Candidate Alderman Zielinski on Chief Flynn’s Retirement

And a further statement about the resignation of Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn from mayoral candidate, Alderman Tony Zielinski who represents the 14th District:

There should be no golden parachute for Chief Flynn

Statement of Alderman Tony Zielinski
January 8, 2018

With Chief Flynn’s announcement this afternoon that he will be leaving his post with two years
left on his contract, I am adamant that there be no buy-out provision executed that lines the
chief’s pockets at the expense of the taxpayers of the City of Milwaukee.

I am working to get a copy of the terms of his contract to see what the specific language states
about early departure, but I sure hope there’s not a golden parachute that will benefit the Chief.

Quite frankly I do not believe Chief Flynn should be rewarded for a lackluster tenure that
increasingly saw him brushing off or even ignoring Council members, the Fire and Police
Commission, and ultimately the citizens of Milwaukee.
