Charles Brock: Vote yes on Measure V

Charles Brock

Please join me in voting YES on MEASURE V! Protect Nevada County from the ravages of wildfire!

NOW is the time to do everything we can to minimize the risk wildfire poses to life and property in Nevada County!

Estimate to raise $12,000,000 a year, Measure V provides locally controlled funding that can be used to match Calfire and FEMA grant money, potentially leveraging millions more to fund additional fire protection programs.

Opponents to Measure V say now is not the time for fire protection, and that Measure V damages our local economy. I say, when it comes to protecting life and property, let’s not be penny-wise and pound foolish; if now is not the time, let us hope that now is not too late!

I have been a Realtor in Nevada County for the past 43 years. The loss of quality of live and the collective wealth (real estate values) that would result from catastrophic wildfire would be immeasurable. The loss of County property tax revenues alone could easily FAR exceed the cost of a 1/2% sales tax!

Let’s be proactive in working to protect our county from the ravages of wildfire!

Vote YES on Measure V!
