The conservative/libertarians at Goldwater Institute aren't fond of the Public Safety First Initiative, which will require the city to spend an additional $63 million annually on cops and firefighters once it's fully implemented in five years. Nick Dranias warns:
Proposition 200 would mandate hiring scores of new government employees without requiring spending be reduced elsewhere or imposing any incentive for good performance or consequence for bad performance. This won’t put public safety first, it will just bloat city government.
