Puerto Rican Police Want Peter

8 Council Vallone PeterEver since former Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. has left public office, rumors have been swirling about his next move. While he has remained relatively secretive of his future endeavors, he has had at least one interesting job offer.

A source close to Vallone told QConf that while the former Public Safety chair was vacationing in Puerto Rico, he was asked to help former NYPD Chief and new Superintendent of the Puerto Rican Police Department James Tuller bring crime rates down on the island.

Responding to the rumor, Vallone said he loves Puerto Rico and is good friends with Chief Tuller, but has no plans on leaving the Borough where he grew up.

“The jobs I’m considering now don’t involve me leaving Queens,” he said. “That’s something I can’t do.”
