We have received comments below as well as emails regarding the recent poll results. The data collected was in response to the question:
Milton hired a parks director for $85,000 / yr. Starting salary for a police officer is $39,500 /yr. For $85k, would you still have hired the parks director or two additional officers instead?
1 Parks Director 166 votes (52%) 2 Police Officers 148 votes (47%)
Both the comments and emails questioned why anyone would choose to vote for a parks director over more police officers for the city. If you did vote for the parks director, some of our readers would like to understand why.
