Commitment to community

Dear Editor:I salute The Downey Patriot staff for doing an excellent job in disclosing a weekly crime report in the newspaper. Whether good or bad, the Patriot is an excellent example of transparency and gives me the faith I need to know that I am getting the truth and not some twisted or half-told report. Thank you for taking the lead in today's news world. I am really impressed with your work, duties and commitment to the community. Sgt. Manuel Villalpando (retired) U.S. Army
