Make the PSST permanent


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

As citizens of Norman, we support the April 1 initiative to make the half-cent Public Safety Sales Tax permanent.

We are involved in Norman Public Schools and we want to point out the exceptional opportunity the tax will provide our kids. It will fund 13 full-time school resource officers working for the Norman police. Now we have our own small force and we hire off-duty officers, and though those groups have served our schools well, the new plan’s officers will be trained specifically to deal with student issues. We believe this will step up the safety of all our schools and give Norman police a valuable introduction to our young citizens.

We urge all parents, former parents, future parents and grandparents, as well as all spare aunts and uncles, to join us in voting yes April 1.
