Bull Valley reputation

To the Editor:

Regarding Sunday’s front-page story about soaring DUI arrests in Bull Valley, you have to agree with attorney Matt Haiduk’s statement that Bull Valley should be ashamed of its police department.

When I moved to unincorporated Nunda Township seven years ago, I was told to watch out for the Bull Valley police. I was told this the day I moved into my house. Per Sunday’s article, they’re still shameful.

A year ago I received a speeding ticket from a Bull Valley police officer. Seven miles per hour over the limit on open highway. The fine came to $663. Yes, there were extenuating circumstances, but not involving drinking. And, yes, I was going 50 mph.

You want a better reputation, Bull Valley? Repave your roads instead of laying slap-in-the-face patchwork now that you’re bringing in the money.
