Secretary of State has plans to install cameras and call boxes in Stratton parking garage

Sunday, May 26, 2024 - Posted by Rich Miller

* Rep. John Cabello speaking on the House floor last night

Transcript…

Ladies and gentlemen of the House. [I’ve] just been notified that we had somebody going through the cars over in the parking deck next to the Stratton. Some things have been taken out of some of the cars. So if you park over there, please make sure you check your vehicle. Luckily, they caught the person and have arrested them.

This goes to my point of safety from yesterday. The Secretary of State needs to put cameras for our safety, for your safety, for your family safety, and anybody that visit this campus. Do it and do it quickly. Thank you.

Cabello’s Friday floor speech is here.

I reached out to the Secretary of State’s office today and was told that cameras and call boxes have been planned for that parking garage. “That was always the plan, not reactive to this.”

* Rep. Jennifer Sanalitro’s car was one of those broken into last night…

Rich -

Rep. Sanalitro asked me to send you a message regarding her car being broken into this evening around 6PM while she was parked in her assigned space in the Capitol Complex parking garage.

With session expected to go well into the night, she is urging staff and members to be safe while returning to their cars. She also is extending her thanks to the Secretary of State Capital Police for their prompt and professional response.

* Rep. CD Davidsmeyer

Transcript…

Just a brief follow up point of personal privilege to what the previous speaker said. So not only did this person break into cars, they also made threats to the owner of that car. I want everybody to know that this person will probably be out in a couple hours. So make sure you lock your cars now before they get out.

The Secretary of State’s office and Sanalitro’s comms person confirmed that Alicia M Jones was the one arrested. And according to the sheriff’s website, she’s still in jail.

…Adding… As of this afternoon, she appears to be out of jail.

    Perhaps Alexi could build a little encampment in the Stratton Garage and force the alleged perp to live there for awhile. That would make sleepin’ on the concrete cots at the SPI downtown library seem like the presidential suite at the Wyndom

    - So make sure you lock your cars now before they get out. -

    I’m 40 years old and grew up about 20 min from CD Davidsmeyer. I’ve always locked my vehicles because it’s stupid not to.

    But I never thought to be terrified that someone might happen to break into it.

    Look at Rep. Davidsmeyer using a non-binary pronoun to refer to an individual. (.. before they get out.)
    He’s practically woke.

    When I was at CMS back in the day and wandered through those areas to pick things up for the various entities at the Capitol complex, I thought that stuff was already there.


  5. - Parking safety - Sunday, May 26, 24 @ 3:25 pm:

    At least two late nights when I got to the guard station, they were chatting (different guys on different nights); didn’t ask me if I’d like an escort to the garage. Is that not in their duties anymore?

    @unwatchable - they both did. It’s almost like it’s something that is totally typical to use in conversation.


  7. - Unsafe parking - Sunday, May 26, 24 @ 4:56 pm:

    Paid to park underground for over 30 years. Questioned the security for years also. It takes a State Rep. to park a couple of years underground, now security is making all kinds of changes. I see how much concern there is for the average employees

    ===It takes a State Rep. to park a couple of years underground, now security is making all kinds of changes===

    1) This just shows that people will literally complain about anything.

    2) This is the parking garage, not the underground lot.

    3) The security plans were apparently already in place.

    4) Bringing heightened awareness to a potential problem is a good thing.

    - Paid to park underground for over 30 years. -

    Was the route inside uphill both ways in the snow?
