Re “City adds 2nd deputy manager” (Page B-1, Feb. 25): I am disappointed that the Modesto city council voted to add the second deputy city manager. At a time when the city is short on police officers and crime is at such a high level, I think this is a misuse of public funds. This money could have been used to add more police to the city. The city council needs to re-evaluate their priorities.
