Vance Connor is the owner of several local businesses in Springfield. As a teenager, Vance was the senior-class president at Springfield High School.


Vance while still in school

Vance Connor was in the same class at Springfield High School as Homer and Marge. Vance and Homer ran against each other for the position of senior-class president in the student council elections. Vance, who was the class vice president at the time, was a lot more professional than Homer in his campaign. He gave a speech where he talked about the policies he helped implement as vice president, including sending three mathletes to the state finals, and germinating all the tenth graders lima beans. Meanwhile, Homer fumbled his speech and was a laughing stock to the whole school. When the time to actually vote for the class president came along, the students decided that it would be funny to vote for Homer as a joke and laugh at him all through high school, and at every reunion. Upon hearing this, Principal Dondelinger had Lenny and Carl dispose of the ballot box by burying it in the forest and Vance Connor was declared the winner.

Years later, Vance ended up owning several local businesses and ended up getting a plaque on the Springfield Wall of Fame. Vance proved to be very popular with the townspeople, but Homer was jealous of him because he won class president. When Homer brought up the election at Moe's Tavern, Lenny and Carl revealed that they buried the ballot box. Homer and Lenny dug up the box and Lisa counted the votes to find that Homer had actually won the election. Homer then confronted Principal Dondelinger about it, who revealed that he had the ballot box buried to spare Homer's feelings.

In a vision of what could have happened, shown by the old Italian man in Luigi's, after Homer won the election, every student started laughing before Lenny and Carl told everyone that Homer proved that you didn't have to be popular to have everyone like you. While the students were all cheering for Homer, Vance applauded his victory.


Vance Connor is cheerful and friendly. He seemed to get along with many people and greeted everyone who spoke to him at the plaque unveiling ceremony. Vance also comes across as confident in how he acts. In high school, Vance was popular and seemed to have a good grasp on what policies the school needed to have. He also served as the class vice president before he was president which shows that he was intelligent enough to have held both positions in his time at school.


  • According to Principal Dondelinger, Vance has green eyes.
