Lately, I have been very concerned about the jail they are planning to build in Whatcom County. It's going to sit on an area three times the size of the mall, cost over $150 million and have so many beds we would have to double, then triple our incarceration rate to fill it. In short, Pete Kremen has proposed something that is too big and too expensive for our community. Please, I urge everyone to attend the public meeting about this and voice their concerns to Pete Kremen. The meeting is this Thursday, Feb. 3rd at 6 p.m. in the County Courthouse.
