West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis – who had seemed ready to step away from the mayor’s office after this term, now says he’s leaning toward running again in next year’s election.

However, he might differ on a major topic of conversation from from one of his key allies, who’s running for election this year.

This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor, Mayor Dennis talks about the need to better regulate guns – a topic current police chief and sheriff candidate Jason Dombkowski has spoken somewhat differently about.

In other law enforcement topics on today’s show, Mayor Dennis joined with his fellow former Lafayette Cop, and current mayor, Tony Roswarski to talk about a bill designed to ease stress on police officers. We’ll ask whether he thinks it’s a profession that’s gotten tougher since the two mayors hung up their badges more than a decade ago.
