Robert Broocker started this petition to Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors

 

We residents of East Contra Costa County are saddled with regulations on emergency services funding from the late 1970’s and 1980’s.  Funding practices for essential services were set at that time, four decades ago, and remain unchanged.Lack of emergency services funding in the eastern 31% of the County strips away resources from the rest of the County.The supporters of Measure X demand that countywide funding for emergency services reflect current countywide needs, not the needs of the 5-10,000 area residents from the 1970’s. The entire County will benefit from dedicating Measure X funds to address this public safety emergency. A portion of Measure X sales tax increase should open 3 fire stations, put paramedics on fire engines and consolidate ECCFPD into Contra Costa County Fire Department. Reducing response times and saving lives and property.  Public safety should be governments number 1 priority. All of Contra Costa county citizens will benefit from opening 3 stations and putting Firefighter/ paramedics on fire engines. A standard all tax paying citizens of Contra Costa County deserve and pay for.
