NEW HAVEN — It was recently reported that New Haven Chief of Police David L. Hardwick is still at work and did not resign as Chief of Police.
Hardwick recently presented a letter to New Haven Mayor George Gibbs and Council members for the Town of New Haven in which he resigns from the Chief of Daily Operation and the supervisor’s position that oversees the general laborers for the town, but not the position of the Chief of Police.
Due to an unclear report on Hardwick’s letter in a previous edition, it was stated some may have misunderstood the resignation of the two separate duties. The beginning of Hardwick’s letter reads as follows:
To the Mayor and Town Council and the Town of New Haven,
I am writing this letter to inform you that effective immediately I am stepping down from two (2) of the three positions that I am currently working under. The two (2) positions that I will be stepping down from are, The Chief of Daily Operation and the supervisor’s position that oversees the general laborers for the town.
The only position that I would like to retain at this time would be the Chief of Police position that I have held since approximately November of 2010.
As previously reported, the letter was read in public session during a recent council meeting of the Town of New Haven. A motion to approve the letter and Chief Hardwick’s resignation of those listed duties was approved with a first from Councilwoman Jessica Howard and a second from Councilwoman Amy Ferguson.
The Point Pleasant Register apologizes for any confusion from the previous report.
