  1. I hope reform is not a code name for defunding or reduction due to political considerations only. I think the Poughkeepsie police are the greatest and so is the mayor. I would gladly demonstrate anytime asked. I appreciate the mayor’s actions making the demonstrations on Main Street, which was peaceful, and the police for not shooting the guy with the gun which turned out to be a toy.
