Letter: Vote ‘no’ on Roseburg school tax; public safety more important

Vote ‘no’ on school levy

I’m voting “no” for the schools levy because I’m more worried about public safety. Every school has empty classrooms and yes, it’s sad to change schools. But I don’t want to live in a community like Eugene or Grants Pass where there are no consequences to committing a crime. They go to jail for one day, then are released due to lack of beds, including pedophiles!

Wake up, Roseburg. Due to all the budget cuts and lack of money in the city coffers, I believe next year there will be a bond measure asking us to pay to maintain public safety. I don’t know about you, but I only have so much money in my pockets.

Between schools or public safety, I’ll vote for and pay for public safety. This will benefit the whole community, including kids.
