Please increase police presence in Kenmore | Letter

Fri, 2016-05-27 09:05
I was fortunate enough to grow up in this great community. My family moved here in the early '80s and it was a wonderful lifestyle. Me and my sisters played in our cul-de-sac with neighbor children, we made life-long relationships with neighbors and community members, we benefited from the wonderful schools and have had great success in our lives because of it. Most importantly, my family laid down roots in the community and have continued to prosper because of it. Mainly because of my father, John Strok, who has owned a small, humble, prosperous, well-loved, established business called Kenmore Jewel Box.
