take on crime
In response to Stephanie A. Jonesí letter to the editor, I would like to respectfully disagree. While there have been some improvements in Rutland, the crime rate has gotten worse. I have lived here consistently for 43 years and also grew up in the same neighborhood. Iím tired of the home invasions, drug dealings and vandalism that consume this city.
Dave Allaire has the insight and experience we need to address the crime issues in Rutland. By addressing crime and making this a safer area, the positive changes can also continue. Having a safer city will ultimately encourage more growth, business and a sense of community.
I am ready for a change. Thatís why I am voting for Dave Allaire.
