Re "A surplus, but no time for a spending spree" (Editorial, April 29): The editorial board brought very good details along with this controversial topic because when it comes to public safety, there are many different views about it.
The facts present a very good argument because in some people's minds, public safety is No. 1 and to others, public safety falls by the wayside.
In the editorial, the picture tells a thousand words because the photograph is of two police officers and the look of lost hope, anxiousness and sadness tells it all. This piece to some people is a tearjerker because if anyone is close to or knows of a public safety member like a firefighter or a police officer knows the pain they go through when it comes to praying to City Hall for a surplus. City Hall is taking right steps but need to take more.
