I’m sure you’ll read about it in the newspaper tomorrow, and I’ll do something longer on this discussion probably this weekend, because it was pretty interesting. But there you go. The Council voted in favor of asking you to tax yourself (PDF!) to the tune of $266/year (by the third year) for more police. Now it’s all up to you in November. Ignacio De La Fuente and Desley Brooks said no, everyone else said yes.
Jean Quan informed everyone that the annual cost is roughly what it costs to fill up her car once, so it really isn’t that big a deal. Seriously! Watch it:
Quan also thinks that trainees in the Academy should count towards the total number of police on the force.
