Trustee David Wolf (Marlboro Township) was out looking for a replacement for Marlboro police chief Ron Devies by mid-January?
Yes. That is what the SCPR has learned from a highly reliable source.
Remember, this was during the time that Stark County Deputy Sheriff Rick Perez was investigating whether or not the chief and his son, Kyle, had done anything to the Township's computer system to merit charges being brought.
On February 23rd, at a trustee meeting, Wolf said in a public meeting that "we will just have to wait and see what happens with the investigation." (a paraphrase)
So why is Wolf out scouting for a replacement after mid-January? Kyle Devies had been fired and Ron Devies had placed on paid administrative leave on or about January 12th?
Doesn't sound like "waiting and seeing" to yours truly. Does this mean that Wolf intends on firing Devies even if he is acquitted in his May 19th trial?
