I encourage voters to consider voting yes on the public safety sales tax proposition. I know it is difficult to vote for tax increases, but in this case it is important to support the cities and county in providing additional funding to deter crime and improve public safety. We know that in West Richland additional officers are needed to ensure a minimum of two officers on duty at all times. This is important for quick response time for citizens as well as greater officer safety.
We are very fortunate in our quad-cities region to have law enforcement agencies that work cooperatively to ensure high quality services, but they truly need our support to do the best job possible.
Please consider voting yes.
MIKE NOSKI, West Richland
