Rybak beefs up public safety

Minneapolis Mayor R .T. Rybak announced a plan for the 2008 budget that will focus on increasing public safety.
Rybak's plan includes the addition of 18 new police officers, more 911 operators and a focus on cleaning up graffiti. The plan will call for an 8 million dollar increase in public safety spending.
Rybak's public safety stance has been criticized in the past, but he continues to make it a priority.

I thought that this article (Strib) was worded a bit awkwardly at times. Mainly the second graph seemed to have a few to many "ands' in it. Overall it was very informative and to the point. It definately followed the inverted pyramid.
