not so fast, remember the so-called dynamic duo police chiefs . . .; in fact she's acting fire chief. i think i smell collusion; e.g., waiting to find a black, dyke, lesbian, to book-end the deal.

I think she'll be competitive in the process. She has a respectable operations and code enforcement background. She was a Lieutenant & Captain at busy inner city fire companies and was later a chief for the city's busy 5th Battalion (SE Side).

Laura Knapp is the real deal.

Is she related Bill Knapp? You know, the discount birthday restaurant. Had so many 100 year olds come in that they went out a business.
