(This letter) is in light of the .357 revolver stolen from the C.L. Bartholow residence on April 3, as thankfully published in the Bedford Gazette and the Cumberland Times-News.
Considering crime is becoming increasingly alarming and dangers in Southampton Township ... this criminal is still at large but he/she is now armed for sure or able to place this handgun in possession of yet another demented individual.
Not necessarily the same perpetrator with the earlier theft of an ATV from a different residence a close distance away; however, this second item stolen was inside a 16-day period.
And to think just six days ago I mentioned police in the monthly township meeting, in front of all three of you supervisors and six other guests, again for how many times previous ... (the) importance as well as the need to begin police presence within the township.
With your immediate response being the high cost of such, the reason for not having; while disregarding the numerous incidents happening in the past.
Maybe we residents have to wait until serious injury or death happens in order to receive police protection.
Madam, I question what is more important to you. I know my answer, and isn’t it wonderful for you to be able to continuously advertise yearly the not any need to raise taxes within.
It seems to me as I read it, a part of the code for the board of supervisors is to protect the safety and welfare of its citizens.
... Let me repeat again for how many times before, my request for a job on township road maintenance. Hopefully working with an “agility program” (we can) improve our substandard road system with professional resurfacing.
Police protection and safe roads could only enhance this county government — never compromising public safety. Let’s not forget filling the potholes.
