Vance

Chris Vance is dreaming. He was stretching it till he came to crime, then he lost me. There isn't an increase in crime. The numbers show that. So please Mr. Vance get to the truth.. we are fed up of Repubs lying.

Educator C ,

Officer Fanone, Thank you! For your bravery and your courage to speak truth to power, everyday. Thank you for your service to our country!
