In a perfect world, the Sheriff would be better staffed and funded than the PPA, so that we can collect funds already owed to the city - and not nickel and dime our citizens to death with over-aggressive parking tickets.
Imagine if the anemic Sheriff's Office was to have over 1,000 members (which the PPA currently has)- how many derelict homes could be auctioned and rehabbed, how much of the $1.5 Billion in missing bail money could be recovered and how many delinquent taxes can be brought in to our city's deficit?
If you ask me, the $109M budget used to discourage tourists and business deliveries from parking in the city could be used for more constructive purposes.
Need GOP petition signed? PPA's just the ticket
