Keep spoon feeding us those phony stats about violent crime being down. It is this personal property and vandalism stuff that is more frequent and more apt to directly impact us than a violent crime.

When the Mayor spoke at Wednesday night's meeting comparing Elk Grove's crime rate to Folsom's, he was not quite accurate. Folsom is much smaller than Elk Grove and is in a different class size city.

But let's not worry, as long as we build plenty of wayfinding signs, more billboard signs and malt liquor stops along our freeways, we will really become a destination city! Too bad it is the wrong crowd we will be drawing.
