The Colorado Springs fire chief has been suspended for a week without pay for publicly endorsing a political candidate.
Fire chief Manuel Navarro is accused of violating city policy, which bars non-elected city workers from publicly endorsing candidates.
City manager Lorne Kramer made the announcement today. Navarro
made a public apology, saying he fully accepts responsibility for
improperly using his title.
Navarro had written a letter of endorsement for Jack Gloriod
(Glorio), who was running for a county commissioner seat. Gloriod
lost to former city councilwoman Sallie Clark.
Navarro and Clark had been at odds when Navarro tried to shut
down a fire station in her neighborhood, and Clark lead a fight to
keep it open.
