Crime commission begins works in Fairfield

FAIRFIELD — Nine members of the Mayor’s Commission on Crime were sworn in Tuesday at the City Council meeting and then went to the police department to start work, Mayor Harry Price said.

Councilwoman Pam Bertani said of the new panel that, “We have some very serious talent on this commission.”

“They have skills,” she said.

Former Councilman Jack Batson, who was on the Fairfield City Council from 1999-2007, Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce President Debi Tavey and the Rev. Mervin Davis  Jr. of True Love Baptist Church are among commission members.

Cynthia Haynes-Epperson, Steve Huddleston, Ivonne Malave, Samina Masood, Scott Mulvey and Jonathan Richardson will also serve.

Bertani said members will not sit around wearing blue ribbons, but instead will produce a report. The document will not be just a report to throw on the shelf, the councilwoman added.

The commission sunsets in September, she said.

Fairfield Police, with the city and Fairfield-Suisun School District, hosted a community meeting April 29 about crime. After the meeting, Price called for the commission. The proposal was discussed at the May 20 meeting and Councilwomen Bertani and Catherine Moy interviewed applicants June 18 and 19.

Twenty-five people applied.

“It was hard,” Bertani said. “We only had nine slots.”

    This will turn out to be a worthless committee. Put more boots on the streets and push the hoodies back to Vallejo, Richmond and Oakland.

    I don't understand why Jack Batson was chosen, he obviously failed to do anything during his tenure, now he is going to fail on this commission......
