The Chico City Council recently voted down a motion to move forward with finding a way to stop the disastrous needle distribution program. This is crazy!
"We might as well be giving them the drugs too..."
Concerned citizen, Choir Tennin, discusses his concerns regarding the recent decisions of our Chico City council and the impacts to public safety.
Councilmembers Scott Huber, Randall Stone and others claim to be environmentalists. Let's take a closer look and see how their policies are impacting the environment in Chico. When you hear Scott Huber, think Rich Ober. Voting matters!
Randall Stone, Scott Huber, Alex Brown and Karl Ory's attempt to micro-manage the police department is causing havoc. And the only way to stop this madness is to remove these people from office.
Chico citizens have had enough! The free drug kit giveway program keeps people in a cycle of addiction and our community suffers. Proponents talk about evidence based research but never acknowledge the collateral damage to our community. They talk about the health care costs of an addict who contracts HIV or HEP C but won't contemplate to cost to a police office or kids who gets pricked by a dirty discarded needle. It must stop.
Dan Machek, wildlife biologist works in our local creeks and on bridge maintenance projects. He discusses his observations of garbage and needles and the affects to our local waterways. It should be the City council's job to protect our public spaces not to bend rules to allow the degradation of these spaces.
Carrie Welch, commercial realtor for Coldwell Banker DuFour Realty speaks up about the safety issues that affect her business as a realtor in Chico
Business owner Micah Hankins speaks up about the crime at his business on Park Avenue in Chico, California. We need leadership at the City Council that understands the issues. We need leaders who don't hide behind ideology We need problem solvers.

Is Chico putting crime on the back burner?
In April of last year, Councilwoman Kasey Reynolds asked the Council to have discussion about the public safety crisis in Chico. Three councilmembers (Stone, Brown, Schwab) voted against even having the conversation added to a future council agenda.
