VOTE YES ON 300 - AND NO TO THE CHIEFTAIN'S BOGUS ENABLEMENT OF CITY HALL! WE AREN'T JUST SICK AND TIRED OF CRIME, WE ARE SICK AND TIRED IF THE CITY'S FISCAL MISMANAGEMENT AND CREATED 300, THE CITIZEN'S VIOLENCE AND CRIME REDUCTION ACT FOR CHECKS AND BALANCES AND THE COMPLETE TURNAROUND OUR CITY WITH POLICE AND COMMUNITY BASED PROGRAMS - The City has lied to taxpayers now two years in a row saying their proposed taxes would be "above" the "authorized level" of officers, which last year was 200 and this year is 207 and Lori Winner formally admitted in a Chieftain editorial that they have been far below that (they had only 180 last year and are under 207 this). Such lies are unacceptable and so is the coverup by the Chieftain.

If our City officials want more police, then citizens have a plan, not just for more officers but for a complete turnaround of our city, to include both police and community based programs so we can become a "role model turnaround city." We the people aren't just handing out our hard earned money these days. We agree we are in a public safety crisis and will provide funding for more police under the following grounds, as outlined in our legislation, that land slided in other U.S. cities and here's why:

We the people hereby and through the signing of almost 5,000 petitions to get on the ballot this summer and by voting yes out ballot item in November, hereby agree that we are still short police officers and are in a public safety crisis (operating 30 plus calls behind and well below the 231 that would put us at the state and national ave) but if we approve funding more officers, due to the fiscal mismanagement of the City, we'll do so under the following grounds fully outlined in the Citizen's Violence and Crime Reduction Act of 2017:

1) That there be at least ten "Problem Solving Officers," in a "Community Policing Unit," that our measure provides funding for, to help create, through a pre-approved grant, ten formal "Neighborhood Councils," integrating "Neighborhood Watches" with those hand picked community policing officers reporting to citizens in ten "Beats" communicating continually with taxpayers through formal meetings about what is being done to reduce crime in each neighborhood;

2) That there will be quarterly "attrition" reports made public to council and city management, which has squandered taxpayer dollars in the past leaving us an average of 60-70 police officers short through the years, at least quarterly, with the number of current officers, taking into account historic averages of those who resign or get disabled and those retiring;

3) That at least three substations, as promised by the City when voters approved legislation for the building of the municipal court/police department will be opened and manned by the City;
,
4) That there be an least five member "Violence and Crime Reduction Unit," provided for by this ordinance, with $50,000 pre-approved by citizens for the first year in training, to especially focus on reducing gang related violence and crime, and to begin to make up for the former police chief's slashing of the gang safety unit;

5) That there be full cooperation from PPD management, who are being given, through this legislation, a pre-approved grant to help set up the Community Polcing Unit, the 10 Neighborhood Councils, who will have officers serve on an Advisory Panel with citizens to help study and implement police and community programs in Pueblo, with a city-wide meeting once a year to promote "Safe Pueblo" police and community programs;

6) That there be an official study and community assessment by a national consultant to analyze what programs Pueblo has and lacks that have been "evidence based" elsewhere to help work collaborative with law enforcement and local agencies to reduce crime and improve our city, especially reaching out to at-risk youth, young adults and the most at need neighborhoods:

7) That there be an Public Safety Advisory Panel, chosen from a large pool of locals in or related to the industry, with at least one police union member and one of higher ranks in non-voting roles, to provide "oversight" of the Safe Pueblo initiative, with funding from the ordinance, a 1/4 of a penny tax, providing $3.5 million per year, approved by persons and entities as required by law, unless otherwise pre-approved in the Act;

8) That a national consultant will work with the Panel to select a Program Director, and, for further checks and balances, a Grant Manager and Grant Commissions, with an experienced auditor to audit annually all programs expanded or created over the ten year program period to ensure that programs are working to especially reach out to Pueblo's at-risk youth, young adults and most at need neighborhoods to reduce recidivism, studying, expanding and implementing the best, evidenced programs in the U.S.;

9) That all persons, programs, agencies and non-profits in Pueblo fully cooperate in the overall "Safe Pueblo" umbrella program, helping to implement and expand pre-approved and new programs. so that Pueblo can become "the role model turnaround city" over the ten year plan, working in cooperation with persons, organizations and foundations to gain private and government grants to supplement the "Safe Pueblo" provided funding from taxpayers.

It is under those grounds that "We the People" will willingly and generously agree to helping fund Public Safety in our community - by voting YES on the Citizen's Violence and Crime Reduction Act on the November 2017 ballot.

THE PUEBLO NEIGHBORHOOD PROJECT: IMPROVING PUEBLO BLOCK BY BLOCK is launching a number of projects and initiatives from mid 2017 on to help improve the quality of life in our struggling city.

Our mission is to encourage locals to work together as an overall family and through specific neighborhoods to help make Pueblo a safer, kinder and more enjoyable community to live in. There will be multiple projects launching mid 2017 on to help Pueblo become a role model turnaround city.

The Project’s activities will include the formal creation of formal Neighborhood Councils, photographic essays of why locals love their neighborhoods, surveys of neighborhoods to gather information, feature stories about residents and activists in neighborhoods and more.

The crime prevention and reduction element of the Pueblo Neighborhood Project will include breaking Pueblo into 10-11 "citizen beats", with "citizen watch commanders" in each neighborhood, as outlined by maps.

Volunteer organizers and residents will "case" their neighborhoods, providing a "watch," using facebook accounts, websites and other technology to report suspicious activities to residents and law enforcement. Some have offered to walk and drive the streets.

I you are interested in helping with this project, contact us through our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Pueblo-Neighborhood-Project-1531120170528145/ and soon through a family of other social media pages, websites, twitter, apps and more.

This project is founded by Jenny Paulson / admin of this fb page and partners, working together to improve our community

While this recent Pueblo-related case indicates that Amber Alerts weren’t executed to perfection: the secondary distribution system wasn’t able to give clean facts as the case unfolded; timeliness wasn’t the best; major errors reported; descriptions of persons involved were absent, most agree that its a blessing that the young mother and son were found safe. But that Gonzalez now needs to be found, charged and prosecuted for all the trouble he caused because of this terrifying incident. - Jenny Paulson
