Bangor Okays New Chief 

After considering 40-candidates, city leaders decided during Monday night’s city council meeting, that Ron Gastia was the right man for the job.

Gastia joined the department in December of 1982 and worked his way up to Lieutenant.

He says he never dreamed he’d be in this new position and considers himself very fortunate.

Gastia succeeds Don Winslow who recently retired.
