Reinstate Chief Dan Miller as Police Chief of Wayland, Michigan

      Wayland, MI

For over 30 years Chief Dan Miller has served our families and the community of Wayland and the surrounding areas. As a community, we have examined the charges against him, and the methods used to discharge him and find them lacking. We demand that any attempts to replace him be halted, he be reinstated, and a thorough investigation be launched into the events that have led us to this situation.

      Note that those with the most to gain from Dan's firing, or those without a lot of intellect, are starting to post here. They go by names like scrote bag, douche bag, Terry Hofmeyer (not the real Terry Hofmeyer)and think that they cannot be detected. in fact I have tracked them through their ISP's and a couple other tricks that I have learned in being one of the Chief Moderators for a large forum. They are not nearly as invisible as they think they are, and in a small town that is a mistake. BUT WHAT THIS REALLY MEANS IS that your dedication to undoing an injustice to a fair and honorable public servant is having an effect. PLEASE BE CERTAIN TO GET YOUR FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS, AND FAMILY TO SIGN THE PETITION. It can be done online or hard copy. PLEASE GIVE US 30 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME ON MONDAY NIGHT to send a clear message to the City Council, the Mayor, and the new City Manager. Just show up downtown at the corner of Main and Superior at 6:30.

    2. PLEASE KEEP IT UP!!

      We are all doing a great job! Please concentrate your efforts with your Wayland neighbors, friends and family. The outside support is wonderful, and gratefully received. But make sure that Wayland City voters are your main focus.

      Folks, I would like to have a massive showing of signatures for the City Council meeting next Monday. I want these folks to understand the political implications of terminating Dan. I want the City Council and the Mayor to understand that opposing us, or remaining silent on the issue is the same thing. It is time the hierarchy of our community understand that we will not allow them to do as they will any more. Your Mayor SEES HIMSELF as "the people's mayor". Your actions will make him prove it, or expose him as a self aggrandizing politician. I don't know this man personally, I would sure like to see him prove he is indeed a politician of the people. But sitting neutral cannot be allowed. PLEASE SPEAK TO EVERY NEIGHBOR, FAMILY MEMBER AND FRIEND AND ASK THEM TO TAKE THE MINUTE IT TAKES TO SIGN THIS PETITION. It will have a powerful effect on the political health of our town. THANKS!!!

      While not now a resident, I was for a long time. I was aware of his contributions and support his reinstatement.

      Personal grudges by others at City Hall should not cause the community to feel less safe or cause an upstanding person that has always put the city and its citizens first any type of job loss.

      My family and I have known Dan Miller and his Family since I was 7yrs. old. Dan is thee most Respected, Dedicated, Loyal, Committed Chief of Police Wayland has ever had and has to this date! What Wayland Mayor has done is wrong, maybe they should Drug Test the Mayor and all City Officials, including The City of Police, Michigan State Police and check into EVERYTHING they Fail to REPORT and TURN IN!
