Dear Members of the San Antonio City Council:
I am a retired member of the San Antonio Police Department and I would like to express my opinion on the Proposed City Budget, particularly as it applies to the police budget.
I strongly support public safety and our San Antonio Police Department and ask that you maintain the proposed police budget. I believe any reduction or redirection of the police budget amounts to defunding our police department.
As a voter, I support strong public safety policies and proven methods of reducing crime with additional officers to help stop and prevent it.
Thank you for your consideration and please continue working to keep our city safe.
