Vote yes for Proposition 14-5, the public safety sales tax. Proposition 14-5 provides funding for much-needed services. Most or all of these services have been delayed or reduced in recent years because of a lack of funding. For example, our county does not yet have a mental health court. Adult drug court funding has been reduced. Aside from the humane nature of these programs; they are cost effective in the long run because they address the underlying causes of criminal behavior.
Please join me in voting Yes for Proposition 14-5.
