San Mateo County okays money for Daly City gun buyback
REDWOOD CITY, California — The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors yesterday approved a $5,000 district-specific Measure K expenditure for a gun buyback in Daly City at the Cow Palace on Sept. 9.
“When the police chief of the city you call home asks you to step up to the plate to help make your community safer that’s just what you do. This Measure K investment will keep approximately 300 firearms out of the hands of potential criminals and into the hands of law enforcement,” said Supervisor David Canepa.
Daly City’s Fil-Am Mayor Glenn Sylvester attended the Tuesday morning board meeting when the fund was approved unanimously.
“I want to thank Supervisor Canepa for making this investment and for collaborating with Chief Manny Martinez to conduct the gun buyback. Reducing the number of firearms in our community will undoubtedly make it much safer,” Sylvester said.
