Mayor Kuhn asked that I provide some clarifying information to you.
There has been a recent allegation that the Mayor of Gig Harbor has unfettered access to the police department, including files and/or items of evidence. What is true is that every Mayor and City Administrator has had a master key to the Civic Center, including the police department offices. Nobody – even the Mayor – can have unescorted access to the police department without having first undergone a background check and at no time does the Mayor have access to the property room where items of evidence are maintained.
