Fruen defeats Craig in battle for Poteau chief's spot

April 2, 2013

Fruen

Incumbent Chief Stephen Fruen defeated Jim Craig, investigator for the LeFlore County District Attorney's Office, in the race for Poteau police chief.
Fruen led 771-477, in what LeFlore County election officials were calling complete but unofficial returns at about 8 p.m. Tuesday night.
Craig was a longtime officer with the Poteau Police Department before moving to the District Attorney's Office. He is the son of longtime LeFlore County Sheriff Jack Craig.
The Poteau City Council appointed Fruen, a 10-year veteran, as chief in June 2012 after veteran Chief Billy Jack Smith died.
