POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Commissioner Fish's statement on the Aaron Campbell case - September 26, 2012

I was saddened and outraged by the death of Aaron Campbell. Earlier this year I supported appealing the arbitrator’s decision to reinstate Officer Ron Frashour to the state Employment Relations Board.

 

After being briefed by the City Attorney and Mayor Adams, it is clear to me that there is merit in taking this case to the Court of Appeals. While the appeal may be a long shot, there are important legal issues which should be decided by an appellate court.

 

I will therefore vote to support Mayor Adams’ recommendation that we appeal the ERB’s decision to the Court of Appeals.
