To the Supervisors: No more excuses; public safety should come first

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Regarding Paul Babeu’s opinion column “All Pinal residents deserve equal protection and safety”:

We note that the Supervisors approved a $373.7 million tentative budget. 

Now, Mr. Rios, there should be enough in that budget for beefing up our Sheriff’s department needs.  After all, what’s more important than our public safety?  Could you be considering politics, and your feud with Paul Babeu over our safety?

The most distressing thing about this, is that we are losing deputies to other counties and towns, because you won’t pay them enough.  That, to us, in unconscionable. 

Can’t you make sure the Sheriff’s vehicles are up to date and new enough to bring us up to acceptable standards? 

The next thing we want to hear from the Supervisor’s office is not another rebuttal in the Miner, but what you are doing to fix those things our Sheriff brought up.  No more fighting, politicking, or excuses!  We voted you in because we thought you were a mature, public servant, who wanted to put the public first, not the democratic party, and not your own personal interests.  Please prove us right!
