- Jen Orchard Headley: This STILL makes me sad! I am so disappointed in my fellow Chesterfield residents... *WHY* didn't you all vote YES???
- Josephine Plodzik: We can't give what we don't have! All the government wants to do is take, take and take till there is no more to give! Remove your rights to protect yourself and remove those that help protect us...very sad!
- Krystal Stone: I can't believe the millage didn't pass, the most important resource in a community is it's police, without it we are sitting ducks with crime on the rise! As it is there are too few, and they are under paid!
