It seems that every day there is a letter to the editor in the Herald supporting the public safety tax. Every day, when reading these letters, I ask myself the same question, "Where are their metrics?"
Where are the statistics that indicate there is a real problem that this tax increase would solve? What concrete results are we going to get for the tax increase? Will there be a projected decrease in the number of domestic violence situations, traffic accidents or murders?
Show me the numbers. If they make sense, I will vote for the tax, but only if they make a compelling case with real metrics.
