Edit: Vote Yes Of Safety Bond

As a community, we're just coming out the other end of one of the most painful tunnels we've ever traversed together. Compassion and support for local first responders is at or near an all-time high. If they were going to ask for a tangible expression of that support, they probably couldn't find a better time than right now. We're going to suggest you put the emotion of the moment aside and instead, consider Coeur d'Alene fire and police departments' request for a 10-year, $6 million general obligation bond in the cold, clear air free of emotion. That's the only way you're going to know you made the right choice for the next decade. And that's why we ask you to join us in supporting the bond request not because of today's emotions, but because of tomorrow's very real public safety challenges/Coeur d'Alene Press Editorial Board. More here.

Question: You do realize that the public safety bond is on the Tuesday ballot, right?
