LFC Comments by Brian Massie – President of LFC

Congratulations to Carl H. Dondorfer for being chosen as the new Waite Hill Police Chief.

In our many debates with the Concord Trustees, we have found Carl to be a very responsive public servant, a great guy and a man of honor.

LFC wishes him well in his new assignment. Waite Hill is a lucky community to have such a capable law enforcement official protecting them.

From the Concord Township website, we found out that Carl has had extensive experience in law enforcement. Thanks to Amy Dawson for writing Carl’s bio.
