    THE CITY OF RICHMOND HAS MADE AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR POLICE CHIEF. I HAVE KNOWN HIM FOR MANY YEARS AND I HAVE WORKED WITH HIM. HE WILL BE AN EXCELLENT CHIEF, HE HAS THE LEADERSHIP ABILITIES AND HE IS A FINE PERSON.

    People should not be voting on what rights a minority group should have. Religion needs not be used to discriminate or deny rights to others.
