Chief Brown Retires.

After serving the town of Santa Claus for nearly 19 years, Marshal Joey Brown has decided it’s time to retire. “It wasn’t an easy decision, but I’ve been thinking about it a while now,” he said, “James will do a great job…he knows the town and the people know him.

Taking the helm is 8 year veteran James Faulkenburg.
