Public Safety: Michael's #1 Priority - Police, Fire, EMS/EMT

Michael is District 2’s strongest supporter of Public Safety. No one wants to live, do business, or grow a family in a city they do not feel safe in. Unfortunately, Dallas is in decline and Public Safety needs to be addressed immediately; which is why Michael has made it his top priority. The current city council voted to defund our police department $7 Million Dollars, Michael Pledges to restore and increase funding to our First Responders.
