    I sure hope that preference was not given to Gary residents over more qualified candidates. The result of Clay’s decision to not go that route was a complete failure, as evidenced by how many went on to commit crime instead of fighting it (and tarnished the entire group of hires, even if some might not prove to be criminals.)
