  1. There is a BIG difference between kid pranks with a spray can and the tagging by gangs for territory boundaries. The police departments know this and should be acting on the difference.
    This is but a further indication of growth NOT being in the best interests of the residences.. Elect persons who support the residents and not growth for growth’s sake as we have now on the PV council.

  2. A large number of rentals in PV attract low income which attracts drug use which attracts crime which amounts to a very unsafe community! PV? Never!
