To the Editor:
Regarding David DeWitt’s letter to the editor, it was not County Commissioner Mike McKay who co-hosted the meeting, it was the Frostburg Commissioner of Public Safety Walter “Bill”) Mackay.
The names are quite similar and since we are both in the news frequently lately, it is an easy error to make.
I (Bill Mackay) was very very pleased with the turnout for this meeting, when we first initiated the idea, it was to inform the citizens of the crimes that were occurring in and around our city, however, in the meantime there were a couple of breaks in the investigations and we were able to demonstrate how well the law enforcement agencies of the area work so well together along with informing the public of ways that they may possibly avoid becoming victims of these crimes.
I would like to thank all of those who attended and again ask them to share with their friends and neighbors all of the good information that they were given.
Walter “Bill” Mackay
Commissioner of Public Safety
(Police, fire and ambulance services)
