It was very imperative to thank East Chicago Police Chief Mark Becker for accepting my invitation. The plan was to get Becker to ride one of the free East Chicago buses and “break bread” at the Salvation Army.
With the gift of gab, Becker was a natural. The fact remains that Becker is a straight shooter and a guy who doesn't stutter when he talks.
The everyday people people on the bus and inside the Salvation Army were all glad he dropped in, and Becker wrote his cell number on a business card he passed out.
This police chief gets it.
You've got to communicate with the people, and Chief Becker is all for that. Gracias, thank you, and I'm looking forward to working on other projects with Becker.
