Tell Mayor Satya and our alders
we need more police and fire safety
and we don’t need a $200,000 police critic!
The WI State Journal nailed it: “If bus rapid transit is the biggest winner in Mayor Rhodes-Conway’s budget, public safety may be the biggest loser.”
Police Chief Mike Koval resigned in frustration knowing that the mayor would not add badly needed police officers even as she proposes an entirely new, $40/vehicle wheel tax.
TELL YOUR ALDERS that Madison needs more police. (Chief Koval says 31 more.) Without extra boots on the ground, the department is examining more “self-reporting” “since we don’t have enough cops to send to everything.”
TELL YOU ALDERS we don’t need a $200,000 full-time police critic whose only job will be to second-guess every police officer.
TELL YOUR ALDERS that Madison needs 10 more EMT/firefighters and an ambulance for Fire Station #14 on the Southeast side.
TELL CITY LEADERS that public safety is a first thing. Send a message!
