There are many things about Chief Brian Mullan that are impressive. Be it his 35 years of distinguished service, his innovative approach to policing or his resolve in tackling the tough issues that cities of Hamilton's size face, it is clear that we will be losing one heck of a public servant when he retires at the end of this year. Although in comparison to his other accomplishments this example pales , one of the things that impressed me about Chief Mullan was his routine appearances on Cable 14, fielding questions from Hamiltonians. It may appear less significant than his many other achievments, but, for me, that was a shining example of good leadership and engagement.
The Hamiltonian is honoured to have Chief Brian Mullan on 10 Tough Questions.
