Re: “The new mayor's challenge

@snow

I like that idea. I have family that have lived in Vegas for years and I guess they did that some time ago, consolidating numerous LE agencies into one "Las Vegas Metro" department. I've wondered if that would be viable here as well. I'm sure it's been looked at.

Re: “The new mayor's challenge

The hole in your argument Snow is city and county public safety have been playing the game with not enough men on the field for over two decades now. The EPSO has been patrolling with the same number of Deputies since 1990, in spite of an exponential increase in county population for which it is responsible. Time and Time again tax initiatives have been brought forth with hard facts to support their passage, only to have them soundly defeated each time. The theme of the opposition has been "fix government waste and there will be plenty of money for public safety." Unfortunately, the sheep have bought that hook, line, and sinker. The reality is El Paso County tax rates, both property and sales, are substantially lower than any other major metropolitan community in the state. Although on the surface that is something to be proud and thankful, when one looks deeper at the ramifactions one sees a Sheriff's Department and Police force sadly lacking in manning. It's time we as citizens being to pay up for services that would make our community stand out once again instead of just scraping by.

Just my two cents.
