AWARDS: Best and Worst of the Week — Police Chief Pat Nikolai and “Not” the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce

By Robert Haugh

The Good —The Leg Drop Award:

Pat Nikolai was sworn in as Santa Clara’s new police chief this week. He’ll fill the rest of Mike Sellers’ term this year. Then, he’ll run for a full four-year term. Nikolai almost beat the controversial Sellers four years ago. The morale at the police department has improved a lot since Sellers left and Nikolai took over. Congratulations to Chief Nikolai.

The Bad — The Jabroni Award:

The “Not” the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce wanted to get involved in how the City distributed money to small businesses in the Mission City during the COVID-19 pandemic. But they haven’t really done anything. They haven’t raised any money to help the people they represent in Santa Clara.

  1. Pat, You can arrest me anytime. You can even put cuffs on me. I would give you no resistance ( just kidding ) It is about time that we have a Police Chief that knows the law and abides by it. I wish you so much luck. I already feel safe. The people of Santa Clara knew what they were doing. Hope to see you soon.
