This letter was addressed to City Manager John Pieteg.
Thank you for your hiring of Laura Farinella as our new chief of police.
I attended the recent meet and greet for Chief Farinella at the Woman’s Club. Chief Farinella was intelligent, engaging, articulate, and inspiring.
Her love of our community was infectious, even with the flu!
When asked about our homeless situation, she responded with sincerity and compassion. “Our homeless are mentally ill.” What a refreshing statement coming from our chief of police.
Laguna Beach P.D. and our city are in very competent hands.
