Our city is facing a critical shortage of emergency services personnel due to a lack of funding. This has resulted in longer response times, increased crime rates and a general sense of insecurity in our community.

Without adequate emergency services, our city is less attractive to businesses looking to invest in our community. It sends a signal that we are not committed to the safety and well-being of our citizens, which can be a major deterrent to businesses looking to relocate or expand here.

There has been an alarming increase in theft and vandalism in our city. This is not only concerning for individuals but also for businesses. With the shortage of police officers, there is currently little to no police presence in many parts of our community. This will lead to a situation where businesses are more vulnerable to theft and vandalism, resulting in significant financial losses.

By investing in our emergency services, we can help prevent such crimes from happening and promote a sense of safety and security in our community. Support the levy lid lift and commit to ensuring safety and security.
