The Kirkland City Council would like to express our sincere gratitude to our community for your support of Proposition 1. The annual funding that is received from Prop. 1 will allow the city of Kirkland to make important investments in our community’s safety needs. The estimated $1.8 million in funding will allow the city to hire additional officers to focus on property crimes and additional school resource officers to support students in our schools. It will allow us to make significant investments in mental health and human services programs, provide dedicated funding to reduce homelessness and support increased gun safety training to make our homes, workplaces, schools and neighborhoods safer. Thank you for choosing to support these important investments.
And thank you for voting. The historic turnout for the Nov. 6 midterm election should make us all proud. Your participation is necessary for a healthy and functioning democracy. Please keep participating. Now, perhaps more than ever, we need you to be involved. Please keep voting, attending public meetings and emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your input on issues. We want to hear from you.
Your participation is essential. Thank you for your continued investment in our community.
The Kirkland City Council
