School guards needed for more security

We have insurance to cover damage that may happen to our car, house, boat, etc. Security guards guard our money. We even carry insurance on our children that will pay to bury them. Simply put, I am willing to pay more in taxes to employ more guards for all of our schools.

Guards that are either police officers or ex-military would be great – guards that have direct communication with each other and their headquarters in a matter of a second.

I voted “yes” to the 1 percent sales tax to build a sports complex, and I’m willing to vote “yes” to create a few more quality jobs in this area that would help ensure our children come home everyday.

I understand that the tragedy that happened is a very unlikely tragedy. But thousands of people in a town similar to mine thought that, as well. Mentally-ill people live everywhere, but unfortunately, not all of them are being helped or even can be helped.

I also understand that my proposal for more guards is not the absolute best or the only answer. I’m just saying, here’s my vote.

I vote “yes.” I’ll help pay for more security in our schools. Who is with me?
