It isn't often enough that we say thank you to our men and women in law enforcement. Every day they leave the safety of their homes and loving families to serve and protect us. I am very grateful for their commitment to keeping us safe.
The mayor of Stockton has an idea to pass a ½-cent tax to increase the police presence in their city. I welcome this idea here in Modesto so we are not only able to continually better equip our police force and expand the force.
To the men and women who protect us daily, thank you for doing a job well done; my family and I are grateful for your service. Please be careful out there.
