CEDAR FALLS -- I am proud to say I support LeaAnn Saul for the at-large council seat. LeaAnn demonstrated she knows the issues, has researched them, listening to both sides. She will make decisions based on facts combined with common sense. An example of this is the PSO vs. full-time firefighters. On paper the PSO program saves the city large amounts of money and does have some positive advantages. But spreadsheets don’t take in account the value of a firefighter and or citizen’s life. She understands PSOs can be a valuable asset to the city and and should be utilized, but as supplement to the department and not a replacement for full-time firefighters. She understands decisions concerning the safety of our citizens and those who serve to protect us cannot be based solely on the results of a spreadsheet. Join me in voting for LeaAnn Saul for City Council.
