Police Chief Chuck Harmon blasts Scott Wagman in a defense of the police department he is distributing to “friends, colleagues, community leaders and citizens.”

Harmon writes: “Scott Wagman has sent out such gross misrepresentation of the facts in his campaign materials indicating crime in Tampa is down 46% while St. Petersburg is up 9%.”

Harmon goes on to cite several statistics, while also stating “the candidates have a duty to tell the truth and not misrepresent facts of such importance which would instill fear in the public. Anything less should be an indicator of how their administration would be run.”
