Lower the starting salary of firefighters.

Currently, the starting salary for Seattle firefighters is $59,196 per year (www.seattle.gov/fire/). The nation's average salary for firefighters is $41,060 (www1.salary.com/Fire-Fighter-salary.html). The city of Seattle should lower the initial starting salary, though not by much, until our economy is again stable.

Reduce the police force by 50%, like other major cities

Other major cities are reducing their police forces. We have the lowest crime rate in history. Chronic criminal activity like drug dealing and burglary are better treated through social services. Requiring higher educational requirement for officers would also mean fewer officer are needed. And officer should never be allowed to work overtime except for the city.

More red light cameras

I suggest you implement red light cameras at most red lights in the city. This would raise millions in needed revenue and discourage dangerous lawbreaking.

 

But please, find a more local contractor that is not based in Arizona.
