Good morning Art,
I know you have been extremely busy since the beginning of the month.
There appears to be many within our country and community who would prefer anarchy over civilized life.
That being said, effective law enforcement needs the public support more than ever.
As you have acquiesced to the mayor's demand of transferring $47,000 from your department for another survey and such, I view the transfer of funds having little impact upon your office and only as a pirate victory for the Mayor. Sadly, the 47,000 dollars will be squandered as the mayor continues to covertly attack you and your department.
Angelina Cruz has used the REU platform to indirectly accuse you of having white supremacist murderers within your organization. The silence by your office regarding these accusations is disheartening. At very least you should stand up for your department, call out Ms.Cruz to identify the alleged murderers by name and force her to back her smack. As a Police and Fire commission board member, Angelina Cruz must be held accountable to a higher standard for her words, If left unchallenged, Ms. Cruz 's statements will continue to fester within the community, compromising the integrity and capacity of your office to serve and protect.
That's my view.
