Are you people running Wellton nuts? Isn’t current Wellton Police Chief Jeff Philpot a former Yuma Marine? A retired former Yuma PD Officer? So he’s been AZPOST certified and a part of our community for what — 30 years at least? And the town of Wellton is going to replace him with some “former” police chief from another state who isn’t even certified in Arizona yet? Are you kidding me? Didn’t San Luis try this same thing with some guy from Texas? That didn’t work out too well. What is it with small-town folks? The current police chief has to fill out an application? What an insult! I think you should all step down.
