Members of the council questioned police commission chair Christine Camp, who said the commission intends to name a new police chief this afternoon.
Camp has been criticized for expanding to list of finalists from the top four candidates as graded by a selection committee to the top six candidates. Some have speculated Camp expanded the list so Assistant Chief Debora Tandal, the only female candidate, would be added to the list of finalists.
Camp told the city council Wednesday the process was fair and transparent and that she is not playing favorites.
"I would be the very last person to advance someone because of their gender," Camp testified before council.
