Capt. Joseph Santoro, (who was named Monrovia police chief, Times, Oct. 7), you may not have been the political choice, but you certainly were the people's choice.
That's evident by your dedication and over 1,000 signatures presented to the City Council (they represent the people, so they claim).
Unfortunately you can't take that to the bank.
But, Capt. Santoro, you can walk proud knowing the people of Monterey Park respect, trust and love you.
Monterey Park's loss is Monrovia's win.
On behalf of the residents whom you have served so well for 22 years we thank you. Good luck, Chief.
