Drafted and sent letter to Richard Yribe County Public Works per resident request to address adding stop signs and addressing safety issues on Palmdale Blvd. The issue was raised due to a fatal car accident on June 17 taking the young lives of Rebekah and Tay. Donations are being accepted at https:/www.gofundme.com/arb8b4us. A secondary request is for a stop sign at 180th and Avenue O by the school.
