Shortage of officers in Palo Alto

1) Privatize more city services (like Half Moon Bay, I think). With the current level of State unemployment, I am sure it would not be very hard to find new recruits.
2) Put something in the ballot to reform the government worker contracts (like San Jose).
3) Use cameras and sensors to control speed, red lighter violators and rolling stoppers.
So, unless people start voicing their concern, we are not going to see any meaningful reform in the city government. BTW, I am not an activist or a politician. I am just a law abiding tax payer, who really scared to cross the streets these days when I know there is no one watching and enforcing traffic safety rules.
