Opinion

Stewart concerned about adequate law enforcement

To the editor:


This is Don Kirkendall, retired Wapello County Sheriff, and I am supporting Mary Stewart in the Democratic primary election on June 5.


It is time to have a State Senator like Mary Stewart who is concerned about the safety of our citizens and can see the need for funding for training and support of adequate law enforcement in the rural areas, towns and cities we live in. For example, we need to have adequate funding for the E-911 centers throughout the state of Iowa to provide the emergency services that are needed for everyone.


Adequate law enforcement funding allows us to possess a better quality of life for all citizens. I know Mary is committed to work towards these goals of rural development and growth.


Please join me in casting your ballot for Mary Stewart on Tuesday, June 5, in the Democratic primary election.
