According to a report by News 12 this morning, the reason the Woodbury Town Board suspended Rockland County Sheriff’s candidate Richard Vasquez from his job as Woodbury police chief is because they felt he was campaigning on the job excessively and not attending to his duties. The board also is expected to file formal action to terminate Vasquez as chief, News 12 reported.

Vasquez has yet to comment. His supporters are painting the move as a possible political hatchet job.
