The League of Women Voters has endorsed Measure S

The League of Women Voters has endorsed Measure S! Here is their recent announcement:

“The League of Women Voters of Diablo Valley endorses Measure S, the East Contra Costa County Fire Protection District parcel tax. Measure S preserves existing emergency services, adds paramedic services, and prevents the closure of up to 3 additional fire stations and layoffs of up to half of existing firefighters. It enacts a parcel tax of $197 per year on each parcel in the district, with an annual cost of living adjustment not to exceed 3%, and terminates in 10 years. The money could not be taken by the state or the county. The district covers far East Contra Costa County: Brentwood, Oakley, Discovery Bay, Bethel Island, Knightsen, Byron, Marsh Creek, and Morgan Territory. This fire district has been long underfunded compared to its neighbors, and this measure provides increased paramedic services, including one paramedic on each engine. Measure S prevents lifesaving response times from increasing. The League of Women Voters supports adequate revenues for government to perform its functions. East County residents and firefighters should not have substandard services. We urge district citizens to vote Yes on Measure S.”

This endorsement adds to our growing momentum leading up to Tuesday.
