I was saddened but not surprised to read the comments of Jane Kinsey — “The bottom line is: Who’s going to pay for it?" ("Sorting out school safety," April 6). Her organization always seems to view issues of public concern in terms of dollars and cents.
I’d pose a different question: What are we willing to do as a community to help assure the safety of our children and grandchildren?
Children represent the future of Lincoln, and money spent to help assure their safety is an investment. I wouldn’t have a problem with a slight increase in property taxes if this expenditure could help prevent another Parkland or Sandy Hook tragedy.
