I said it once and I'll say it again, DO YOU MISS CHIEF KELVIN SEWELL YET. How many murder press conferences chief kelvin sewell did when he was chief, ah let me think, none because there were no murders in pocomoke when he was here. Don't forget to vote on the next mayors election. Bruce Morrison ruined this once crime free town.

The only corruption is with the Worcester County States Atty. Oglesby and the State Prosecutor conspiring with each against Sewell because of his law suit.
