While we do not endorse individuals for political office, The Chronicle does make recommendations on ballot measures:
■ Our recommendation: Vote YES■ Our justification: The Springfield Public Safety levy maintains the level of service and security, handling low-level crimes and housing minimal-threat inmates at the jail. The levy is $1.40 per $1,000 assessed valuation for five years beginning ’23. It’s renewed every five years, so it won’t increase your taxes. It also funds all those “extras” — like community service officers and CAHOOTS.
■ Our recommendation: Vote YES . . .
