Vote Brandi Peetz

This election we are presented with brings several hard decisions when it comes to who we want to protect our interests. One positive decision we can make is to vote for Brandi Peetz, Spokane Valley Council 2 position.

Property and digital crimes have become an escalating problem. Brandi will work passionately with the present council to support and encourage upholding safety in our community. New and innovative approaches should be explored. Our present council has expressed an interest in starting its own police department. This is a waste of taxpayer money, time, and resources. Crime statistics have been reduced in the Valley under the present sheriff’s contract.

Brandi Peetz has the experience and community-based resources to collaboratively address these issues. She is well-suited for these tasks by having a B.A. degree from Gonzaga University in Criminal Justice and Sociology. She has past experience as a Crime-Check/911 operator and presently serves on the Sheriff’s Citizen’s Advisory and Review Board.

With your vote, we will be focused on a community voice and driving down crime rates, instead of party ideologies. Please join with me to vote for Brandi Peetz. “A Commitment to our Community…A Commitment to Your Voice!”

Bill Bates
