Last week, I attended the September 20 Town Hall: Lens on Law Enforcement hosted by the Downtown Bellingham Partnership and Bellingham Chamber of Commerce. In the 90 minute event, law enforcement was given about 20 minutes to speak to the issues at hand. I was thoroughly disappointed this event didn’t address the heart of our public safety crisis. So much air time was given to politicians and so little to law enforcement. 

Over three weeks ago, Sen. Simon Sefzik announced that he would be hosting a Public Safety Forum at the Meridian High School Auditorium on 9/29 at 7 PM so the public can hear directly from law enforcement on our public safety crisis. This forum boasts a grand total of zero politicians on the panel. Sen. Sefzik will be moderating this forum so that we can all hear from the local police chiefs instead of empty political promises and excuses from politicians. If you’re unable to attend in person, you can live stream this event on YouTube or Facebook via Bellingham Metro News. 

Sen. Sefzik has been an advocate for law enforcement and public safety since the first day he took an oath to represent us. He’s been endorsed by the Washington Council of Police & Sheriffs, by the Washington Fraternal Order of Police, and Sheriff Elfo.

Crime is destroying our public lands, making it increasingly difficult for businesses to make ends meet, and endangering our kids. Sen. Sefzik is demonstrating the leadership we need to move towards a safer Whatcom County.  If you’re concerned about Washington's crime wave, I urge you to come hear from law enforcement at the upcoming forum, and vote for Sen. Simon Sefzik in November.

Susan Prosser, Lynden
