>> Hello City Council Members- happy new year, and thank you for your
>> service to our community.
>> My name is Chris Finan and I live at 501 Concord Drive in the Willows.
>> We've had at least half a dozen robberies within several blocks of my home
>> in the past eight weeks, and there have been two on my street alone in the
>> past month. I've reached out to the police department to find out what
>> more is being done - I know they made two arrests last month, but the
>> robberies have continued - and what I can do to protect my home, but I have
>> not yet heard back.
>> My wife and I are veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, and it's deeply
>> unsettling for us to feel a sense of vulnerability in our home, when we
>> experienced so much abroad. That's not how we want to live and raise our
>> family. I believe we as a community should be able to find a solution to
>> ensure a sense of security.
>> I recognize that there are many challenges facing our community and the
>> city has finite resources, but there has to be more we can do to prevent
>> these break-ins.
>> Please let me know if the City Council has any initiatives underway to
>> address this problem. I am ready to help to be part of the solution.
>> Thank you,
>> Chris Finan
