My big issue, as a tax payer and mother of K-12 kids, our state is proposing to cut over 300 million from education and only 38 million from DOC, yet our new govenor wants to increase the DOC budget by 100 million. Does that make sense to anyone else?? What the hell is wrong with this picture. When DOC is #4 in spending the states money!
Now, with that as ammo go tell your neighbors and friends and relatives who don't give a crap about your inmates but who love and adore their children...outrage the community with that!
Send mass e-mails to friends and family and your representatives...
Now is the time to get the word out there and get the government to quit spending so much money on incarceration and more on our kids futures, the foster kids futures, and low income families futures because all these budget cuts are affecting this class of children...who, without this funding, may have a greater chance of ending up in prison creating more of a vicious cycle.
This isn't going to be a 'fix all' resolution but this will relieve some of the budget woes AZDOC is facing.
Bonus: My husband will be home earlier!!
