Re: Mayor's comments on DUI patrols
In the time that Ken Murphy has been mayor, we as citizens of Payson have been witness to some very disappointing behavior and comments from him, but the statements attributed to Mr. Murphy in the article of Dec. 19 regarding the DUI Task Force really takes the cake. As someone who has lost a friend and loved one to a drunken driver, I am appalled that Mr. Murphy would place tourism and excessive holiday revelry above the safety of the members of this community. Does the mayor truly feel that by the task force doing its job, Payson's economic future will suffer such a devastating blow? Perhaps if society would take the time to act responsibly on their own accord, these task forces would no longer be necessary. Perhaps Mr. Murphy, the life these men and women of the task force save might be mine ... or yours.
