stop punishing tax payersSeptember 3, 2015  Joy Gilfilen

“Stop Punishing Taxpayers, Start Rebuilding Community” is a report we just published from the Restorative Community Coalition…to explain how we do not have to build a bigger jail,

we can reduce the size of our jail population by reviewing the police and law and justice practices in Whatcom County, by instituting restorative economics alternatives. Here is the link to the document. I especially encourage people to read pages 10-12…for how we could deal with the immediate crisis…if the public starts supporting the policy makers to get it done. http://www.whatcomrec.org/RCCReport.pdf
