Back on February 9th, 2012 I had issued a news release asking for the reinstatement of the 48 sheriff deputies. You can see the complete news release here. The following is a quote from that release.
“I am appalled that the County Board sat back and let this happen,” Broitzman said. “We have violence on our buses, thugs & gang bangers roaming our parks, people being attacked at events near the lake front and the Board decides to cut 48 more deputies. They are giving our county over to the criminals.”
Well, it looks like I was on the right track. A JSOnline article today has the headline Clark Rehiring 29 of the 48 laid-off deputies. We seem to be able to find money for anything and everything in this county, except for the things that government is actually supposed to do. This is the latest example. Criminals need to be punished. It is the job of government to restrain and punish criminals.
Do you agree? If so, you need to let your county supervisor know it. Click here to find out who they are. Improper priorities by our elected officials will continue unless you tell them otherwise. Let your voice be heard.
