Polling

A pollster interested in police and fire salaries and City Councilman Elbert Holman Jr. called a resident Wednesday to ask if that person would:

Support a ballot initiative requiring that Stockton have 1.8 police officers and 1.2 firefighters per 1,000 residents regardless of its economic impact on the city;

Support a ballot initiative mandating police officers and firefighters be paid as much or more than police officers and firefighters in Tracy, Lodi and Manteca are paid, regardless of the economic impact on the city;

Support a ballot initiative mandating that the healthcare and retirement benefits of police officers and firefighters be decided by a three-judge panel and binding arbitration, regardless of the economic impact on the city.

The pollster referred to The Record and Mayor Ann Johnston’s position that the city does not need more police officers, but better police techniques and practices, the person who was polled said. That person said the pollster asked about removing police and fire salaries and benefits from the City Council’s control to that of a three-judge panel and binding arbitration.

 Finally, the pollster asked how the person felt about Holman, but no other council members, the person who was polled said.
