Mailbag: Vote yes and help protect community

  • 0
{{featured_button_text}}

I am writing to urge a yes vote on 2-130.

We need it to protect the essential services that help our communities prevent harm. I worked in a community that did not have 24-hour police/sheriff protection, and it left me and other front-line workers having to provide care we were not equipped to do. It ended up violently, with permanent damage to both the front-line team and the victim of a mental health crisis. This was pointless waste.

And as this last year of pandemic has so abundantly demonstrated, we need an agile public health department. Let’s never again let a pandemic sneak up on us. Vote yes on Measure 2-130 with me and help protect our wonderful community.

Shelley Ries, RN
