Response to school threats was good


There is something very special that we have here in Scappoose, and for that matter in all of Columbia County: a keen sense of community.

No matter if you had a child, a grandchild or did not have any direct connection to children in the Scappoose School District on April 5, there was no one who wasn't touched (by) or aware of the threat to our children and the swift and direct action taken in defense of those children by our school district, our police department and our city.

I am proud to live in a city where our citizens and our children come first, and we will find the resources to compensate those who put themselves in harm's way to defend us against those who may choose to threaten, harm or do injustice to potential innocent victims.

Thank you so much.
