Ivor could take lessons from Newsoms

To the Editor:

I recently read the article (“Speeding motorists fund 72 percent of Newsoms’ budget,” Sept. 7).

I was astounded by the facts. I am sure as you know when I was running for mayor I proposed this very same thing in the Town Of Ivor.

“The state puts the signs up and we just enforce the law,” Newsoms Police Chief Doug Davis said.

Good point Chief Douglas. That’s what I said before. The town doesn’t want to become Waverly or Windsor was the answer I received.

The Newsoms story was very interesting. It’s a polar opposite of what the town is willing to do. Ivor could support its own police force and take a burden off the taxed-to-death residents.

The response time would be much faster, and we would be safer to boot. It seems like a no-brainer to me.

Ivor could take lessons from Newsoms.
