Still trying to decide among Dellwo, Holy, Keller and Oakley?

Check out each 6th District House candidate's stance on 15 issues facing the state at the following links:

Dennis Dellwo

Jeff Holy

Larry Keller

Ben Oakley

And here are their responses to one of the questions:

Do you support the state law that allows local governments to install red light enforcement cameras?

Dellwo: Yes, red light or speed cameras are appropriate where they can demonstrate a positive impact on traffic safety. This is a decision the city must make. This option should be available for cities. The revenue generated from this should be dedicated to traffic safety.

Holly: No. After 22 years as a Spokane Police Officer, I well understand the difference between that which enhances public safety, and creation of a revenue source.

Keller: Yes I do, as long as strong guidelines are in place. I recognize with cuts in law enforcement this may provide an avenue to provide more law enforcement in other areas. The intent should be to increase safety and not build a bank account for other community priorities.

Oakley: No.
