Green Speaks in Code

Deputy Mayor Saul Green announced today that he will keep Ralph Godbee as chief of police. He had previously only been chief on an interim basis.

What I thought was most interesting was this part of the announcement.
Ralph Godbee has proven that he is the right man to lead the Detroit Police Department. We received a number of quality candidates, but believe Chief Godbee is the person to lead DPD in our efforts to improve public safety.
Chief Godbee has proven that he's the right man for the job?

I wonder which one of the half dozen or so high-profile shootings we've had since he took over "proved" that.

I believe what Mr. Green meant to say is that Chief Godbee has proven that he won't run for mayor when Mr. Green tries to remove the word "deputy" from his job title.
