I finally got a chance to review the DVDs of the Measure Y Oversight Committee meeting and Public Safety Committee meeting over the weekend, and I hope to get a more thorough post about the police recruitment plan that will be considered by the City Council tomorrow night up by the morning.
I share Dillard-Smith’s concerns with the recruitment strategy and funding request, and I think she does an excellent job explaining the problems at hand. I find it exceedingly frustrating that the Mayor’s office, the City Council, and City staff display little respect for the Committee members and their concerns about putting the Measure Y police fund into deficit. Check out this scene from last Monday’s meeting to see what I’m talking about.
