Mike Winter was hired this month as the new Conway fire chief, although his shirt still says “assistant chief.” Winter, who has been with the Conway Fire Department since 1995, was chosen for the job by Mayor Tab Townsell, who said Winter “has the detailed understanding and global perspective to make Conway a great chief for many years to come.” Winter’s father, Lewis, 86, was first assistant chief for the Conway Fire Department.
