Excerpt: One trusted source described Sandusky police Chief John Orzech as a standup guy, a man who says what he means and does what he says. There can hardly be a higher compliment. This sentiment seems to run through the community. Orzech has worked in the city for 16 years, he knows the community, he's seen the best and worst of the city. And still he wanted to be chief. He's well aware the job isn't easy and he has proven he's up for the challenge.
A look at the front page photo of his swearing-in ceremony in last Wednesday's paper tells a story. A good-sized crowd gave the chief a standing ovation. Congratulations to Chief Orzech. May your new position live up to your expectations and may you live up to city residents' expectations.
With Huron Chief Bob Lippert, Perkins Twp. Chief Ken Klamar, Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth and Chief John Orzech, the community has a winning hand — Four Aces.
