Back-Tracking


Now the Mayor is suggesting that we should not go forward with all the initiatives and funding that is necessary to protect our city.

Bart seems to think that everything that has been done as of late is not the reason for the decrease in crime.

I really didn't think he could get any more ridiculous on dealing with crime until I read this article.

From the article:

"And if they stay in place, of course we have no way in our current budget to be able to pay for it. So, the funding needs are not gonna go away," Mayor Peterson said.

So, the mayor said it may be best to address those funding needs in phases. Phase one would take us from now through next year. Phase two would go toward what he calls the chronic problems in public safety spending. He hopes to have those numbers in the next few days.

Someone needs to advise our Mayor that planning public safety is different from planning a construction project...you do not handle public safety in "stages" because crime does not come in stages, it's everyday...it's now!
