Issue 1: Safety and Personal Security in our Community
In the past few years, we have seen an uptick in crime and a lack of
enforcement regarding that crime. I will work with the other Commissioners to work toward solutions to this problem.
Children’s playgrounds and parks should not be campgrounds and toilets for the homeless and addicts that are in our community. For years, I have been insisting that the COSA designate an area for the homeless to camp so that our parks can be kept safe, clean, and sanitary.
Before COVID-19, the public areas in St. Augustine were filthy. It took a pandemic to accomplish what I have been advocating for years.
