In the last 6 months, downtown San Marcos has seen a problem with an increase in violent crime. It has come to my attention that employees of San Marcos nightlife are having to deal with more difficult and violent customers.

Now we've always handled our own and tried to be accommodating bars to everyone in the community, but the lack of police presence on the square has brought out some of the ugly sides of our San Marcos population.

I know it isn't fair to ask of you guys to solve my problem, but back in December of 2019, I saw firsthand the consequences of gun violence when two of my friends got shot in a drive-by in a bar that was closed for a private Christmas party a mere five feet from me. My friends were lucky to walk away with just scars and traumatic stress from that night, but if it wasn't for San Marcos PD, that shooter would've gotten away and no justice would've been had. Now moving forward to 2021 in the last three weeks alone, we've had terroristic threats, customers apprehended with guns, and an increase in alleyway street brawls, and a huge presence of drug trafficking.

This could happen anywhere, but I'm asking YOU to please take action and joining me in asking for more police patrols in the downtown area to keep everyone safe.
