I’m voting for new guys

As a police officer in this city for 34 years, I have an opinion on the current politicians saying the Fresno Police Department should be increased by 200 officers.

First, I agree with H Spees’ assessment. I was on the streets of Fresno during the early 1990s. It was total chaos. I now ask myself what has been done in the last 20 years to fix that. In short, nothing. So who do we believe in this election? The lying politicians who never miss a photo op or the new guys?

Fresno suffers from political apathy and it hurts all of us. Things are bad, folks, and it’s time we hold those in power accountable. I have been waiting too long for positive results.
