BPD Commissioner Davis rumored to be candidate for Homeland Security post


BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis is being mentioned as a possible candidate for the next secretary of Homeland Security, the Boston Globe reports.

Current Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is stepping down in September to take a job in education.

According to the Globe article, the White House would not confirm or deny if Davis was on a list of candidates, but New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte says Davis would be an excellent choice for the job.

President Barack Obama is expected to announce his nomination within the next few weeks.
