88 Drive-In Theatre Seeks City Council Candidates
Commerce City, CO - The 88 Drive-In Theatre, a Commerce City landmark for almost half a century, stands with the rank and file police officers of the Commerce City Police Department. By an overwhelming margin of 67-3, the sworn officers of the CCPD voted they have "lost all faith, trust and confidence" in Chief of Police Troy Smith.
One rarely sees such astronomical election results outside of North Korea. The City Council of Commerce City must act in response to this embarrassment. The City Council must replace Troy Smith.
"We have experienced first-hand the overbearing, dictatorial management style of Chief Smith," Susan Kochevar, the owner of the 88 Drive-In Theatre said. "The man, on official city letterhead, threatened to shut us down if we did not adopt his business suggestions. It was absurd. It is no wonder the hardworking, sworn officers of Commerce City have no faith, trust, or confidence in him. We are disappointed to see the City Council and City Manager are not taking action. We are recruiting candidates for City Council who will refuse to let this great city's police force deteriorate further. If you are interested in running please send us a private message through the drive-in Facebook page."
