A long time New York City cop, Mr. Pickell rushed to help others when the Twin Towers came down on September 11th.

We were sorry to hear that such a great public servant has left us, Damien J Pickell was the Chief of Police of Milo and also the Milo Town Manager.  He passed away last night from complications of the flu, according to a Facebook post by the Baileyville Police Department.

We sincerely thank Mr. Pickell for his service to our state, and send our condolences to his family and friends.
