Regarding "And of the new officer, Interim Police Chief Craig Eicher said in a later statement, "Officer Jimmy Boland represents the very best. He separated himself from the rest of the candidates by demonstrating solid ethics,..."

Where's the ethics in nepotism?

I have a great deal of respect for Pleasanton's men and women in blue (and all that wear the uniform and serve), but this just seems to reinforce the allegations of nepotism I've heard from time to time that exist within the City of Pleasanton when it comes to hiring.

Perhaps the Pleasanton Weekly could obtain City employee records to determine whether nepotism (of which this hiring appears to be) does exist, and if so, to what extent.

Would be interesting to find out.
