The New Year
The new year, 2009 is already 1/12th complete as you glean the pages of the Boulder City Magazine’s first 2009 issue. I imagine my daughters could tell you how many days until Christmas; however, that is a number I simply choose to not track. I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank Brad and DeAnne Appleby for allowing me to grace the pages of this fine publication. This magazine is testimony to their ongoing commitment to Boulder City – Thank you for all that you do.

The police department, for the first time in years, has all of the police officer positions filled. Much to the gratitude of our esteemed personnel director, Denise Zambetti, who after 36 years in the human resource business, has decided to retire. I won’t tell Dee what I was doing 36 years ago. I am confident that Boulder City is a safer place to live, work, and visit due largely to the diligence and hard work of Mrs. Zambetti. Chief Finn and I both thank Dee for her years of service to the police department as well as the City of Boulder City. She will be missed; however, her legacy will live on for many years as she certainly was instrumental in hiring a lot of the staff at the City. Congratulations on reaching this milestone and we wish the best of luck to Dee and John in their retirement.

Lastly, I want to implore those of you that are critical of the police department, or perhaps simply share an interest in the job that we do, to take the opportunity to participate in a ride-along. This program puts you in the front seat of a police car, on the passenger side, while you comb the streets of Boulder City. The ride-along program has been in place for many years; hundreds of residents have taken advantage of it over the years. There is no doubt in my mind that your experience, with the men and women that put their lives on the line each day for this fine community, will be rewarding and interesting. You can arrange a ride along by calling 311 or 293-9224 and asking for the on-duty supervisor or by e-mailing me directly. Who knows - you may even be recruited as one of our outstanding volunteers that assist us in completing our mission to make Boulder City the safest place to live, work and visit.

Until next month, stay safe!
