Keep the fireworks ban

Kent voters spoke with a 62 percent majority. We now sleep at night the week prior to July 4. Our dogs aren’t traumatized.

Thank you, Toni Troutner and Bill Boyce for not moving forward on changing the policy your constituents agreed with. Our neighborhood is safer and quieter. Suggesting Kent Police are ticketing kids with sparklers is insulting and ridiculous. Please support what the community supports.
