Island Transit funds should go to police | Letters

Editor,

In the April 18 Whidbey News-Times, I see the law and justice folks need a helping hand.

No surprise there, but they want to raise taxes.

How about this instead — Let’s put fare boxes on all the Island Transit buses, let the riders pay their own way, and take the tax money we dump in the transit black hole and give it to the sheriff and county legal folks?

I don’t know about you, but, when things are going south, I prefer a deputy to show up rather than a bus driver.
