At the August 14th Vista City Council Meeting, the commander of the Vista Sheriffs Office gave a presentation to council and one of the items reported was that out of twenty eight jurisdictions within San Diego County,Vista ranked eighteenth (one being the lowest crime rate and twenty-eighth being the highest).This is NOT acceptable! We can and WILL do better under my leadership! One of the reasons I believe we are in the bottom half is because Vista currently has only eighty-three Deputies. Our elected officials have failed to increase funding for more Deputies for years all the while continuing to approve new housing construction increasing our population and making it even more difficult for our hard working Deputies to keep up with call volume. The Deputies have had to change from proactive policing to a reactive policing policy. Time to put public safety ahead of unnecessary projects!

I am a candidate for the Vista City Council not because I want to be a career politician but because I feel our city needs leadership that will listen to the people of Vista. Together we can build the city WE want and not what our elected officials think we want. View all posts by jamesstuckradforvistacitycouncil
