Local governments provide nothing more important than public safety.

People will not invest lavishly in homes, businesses and schools without a reasonable expectation of security for their lives and properties. For a community to succeed, its residents must sleep at night without excessive fear of crime or disaster.

So it is good news to see Mayor John Suthers propose to the Colorado Springs City Council a 2020 budget that emphasizes hiring and raises for the city’s police and fire personnel, who risk their lives to ensure everyone else can lead their lives in relative safety.
