My name is John Doe and I am a registered voter and resident of your district.
I am urging you to vote YES to SB 441 because it is essential that we empower Baltimore’s Civilian Review Board with the resources to be more effective. We do not need need to create a new entity.
Baltimore already has a civilian review board to hold law enforcement accountable.
Thank you for your consideration. – John
