To the Editor:

I am a 76-year-old grandmother born in Southampton County and have lived in Franklin most of my life. As a citizen of our city, I have been most disturbed by the police chief’s actions.

Ronnie McClenny has served this city well for 25 years. I have never heard anything but good spoken about this man.

It is indeed time for our city manager and the City Council members to intervene and do the right thing.

An effective police chief will put aside his personal feelings and give Ronnie McClenny his service weapon and other mementos. It would indeed be good for the entire police force and the citizens of Franklin.

Let there be peace on earth, good will towards men.
